Atrium appoints Scott Dwyer to lead its Polish operations (PL)
Atrium European Real Estate Limited, a leading owner, operator and developer of shopping centers and retail real estate in Central and Eastern Europe, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Scott Dwyer as CEO of its operations in Poland.
As CEO of Poland, Scott will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the Group’s Polish operations, building on Atrium’s success in establishing itself as the dominant shopping center owner-operator in the country.
Originally from Australia, Scott has more than 15 years’ experience operating in Central and Eastern European markets, having been based in Poland for most of that time. He joins Atrium from Heitman International, where for the past two years he was Executive Vice President and Head of Portfolio Management. Based in Warsaw, he oversaw Heitman International’s €3.7 billion European portfolio, 60% of which sits within the CEE.
From 2009-2012, Scott was General Manager at ING Real Estate Development International with core responsibility for Germany, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland and Romania, as well as retail assets across the business. Scott was directly responsible for a €1.3 billion development portfolio, which included Uberseequartier in Hamburg, Zlote Tarasy in Warsaw, Allee and Vorosmarty in Budapest, Le Terrazze in Le Spezia, Italy and Designer Outlet Landquart in Switzerland.
Scott has a Business degree from the University of Technology Sydney. Rachel Lavine, chief executive officer of Atrium, said: “Scott brings a significant amount of relevant experience to Atrium which will be invaluable as he leads the operations in our largest market. Poland is at the forefront of our growth strategy and we currently have two major redevelopment and extension projects underway there, in Warsaw and Torun. We are confident that with Scott’s expertise, we can continue to maximise the potential of our Polish business and its contribution to the wider Group performance.”
