Goodman has expanded its team in Germany with the appointment of Christof Prange and Lars Zimmermann. Both have extensive experience in the area of logistics real estate and will bolster Goodman's project development and acquisition activities in Germany.
"The logistics property market in Northern Germany provides a range of opportunities. My aim is to further expand Goodman's position in this region, and maintain our position as market leader in the development and management of logistics sites," said Christof Prange, who lives in a suburb of Hamburg and has strong connections with the region.
Lars Zimmermann has been appointed Business Development Manager. From 2006 to 2010, he worked as a real estate agent for Garbe Logistic AG, where he managed the office for North Rhine Westphalia. Following this, the 31-year-old took an extended break to travel. During this time he worked with estate agents in Vancouver, Canada and Sydney, Australia.
"Access to different markets gave me a new impetus for my work. At Goodman, North Rhine Westphalia will be my main focus, but I will also work to secure opportunities throughout Germany," said Lars Zimmermann.
"We are delighted to welcome these two new, committed and motivated colleagues to the team, and with the rapid growth of our business, in order to complete forthcoming projects, we are planning to recruit even more staff," explained Andreas Fleischer, Goodman Country Manager for Germany.
"In addition to business development, there are also new positions to be filled in property management and technical development," he said.
