Peeters will oversee the company's construction pipeline, provide commercial support to the development teams and help the Board develop its business strategy for both the UK and European markets. He joins the company on December 1, 2011.

Previously a director of Goodman and prior to that Eurinpro, Peeters has overseen more than 60 million ft² of logistics development throughout the UK and continental Europe in a career spanning over 20 years.

Mike Hughes, CEO of Helios Europe says: "Peter's knowledge and experience in the design, functionality, planning and construction of large scale logistics development is unrivalled. He has overseen over 60 million ft² of built space for some of the biggest international manufacturers and 3PL companies throughout Europe.

"We are delighted to have such a highly respected and well-connected expert join the team, providing considerable technical and commercial firepower to our pan-European build out program."

Helios Europe recently secured €100 million of funding for its development pipeline from Tristan Capital Partners, the private equity real estate firm.
