Joris van der Schueren has been appointed Country Manager of REDEVCO India Private Limited, a subsidiary of REDEVCO Asia Limited. Joris van der Schueren, until recently Senior Manager Research & Concepts at REDEVCO, will lead the company's investment and development activities in India from the new office in New Delhi, which will be opened later this year. Joris will report to Robert Lie, who was appointed Managing Director of REDEVCO Asia earlier this year. Lie is based in Hong Kong.
Oedsen Boersma will succeed Joris de van der Schueren as Manager Research and Concepts at REDEVCO's Head Office in Amsterdam. Boersma comes from WPM and will focus on assessing the feasibility of development projects as well as defining and analyzing concepts, programmes and locations in conjunction with REDEVCO's concept architects.
REDEVCO sees the establishment of footholds in China and India as the first step in its long-term commitment to Asia. The region will continue to see rapid economic expansion in the coming decades resulting in a substantial increase in consumer spending. In Asia, as in Europe, REDEVCO will build on its international experience and expertise in retail real estate development and management to create high-quality assets that allow retailers to profit from this growth.
Initially the focus will be on participating in new development projects in major cities in China and India through our offices in Hong Kong and New Delhi.
