International real estate advisor Savills has launched a property and asset management service at its Belux operation.
Luis Vasconcelos has over 20 years experience in the Belux property market and was previously managing director at DTZ, responsible for its property management and agency departments. Luis has a proven track record having secured several major instructions in his previous role including Siemens' Belgian portfolio (75,000 m²) as well as the letting and property management instruction for the Glaverbel building owned by UBS.
Serkan Yigit has almost five years experience in the Belux property market having managed properties and portfolios such as the Glaverbel building (30,000 m²), Hermez Plaza (22,000 m² occupied by Honeywell and HP) and the Belgian Zeeman retail portfolio.
The team's international clients have included UBS, Credit Suisse, Cordea Savills and DMI.
John Defauw Managing Director of Savills Belux, says: "This new business line is complementary to our existing valuation, consulting and investment advisory services and will help us to expand further to include agency services - an area in which we are looking to actively recruit.
