Three leading retail sector specialists are joining forces to form a new pan-European retail advisory business to be known as 'Retail Partners Europe'. The three businesses are REIM Partners (Southern Europe), RREIT (Germany) and Retail Partners (France).
Retail Partners, was established in 2005 by former Jones Lang LaSalle and Société des Centres Commerciaux Director Simon Hollis and Andrew Percival previously head of Corio France. They have successfully demonstrated their strength and knowledge of the retail property market working with and advising a range of major retail brands, investors, developers and municipal governments in France and Belgium.
REIM Partners a specialist retail property advisory and investment business focusing on the Spanish, Italian and Portuguese markets, set up two years ago by former Jones Lang LaSalle Directors, Bill Judge and Steven Weaving. It has successfully demonstrated its ability to identify investment opportunities in Continental Europe and is one of the few to have closed transactions in the challenging economic environment of Southern Europe.
Based in Hamburg, RREIT is a specialist retail investment and asset management business. RREIT was established in 2009 by Jorg Krechky, former Director and Head of Shopping Center Investment at Jones Lang LaSalle Germany and has over 20 years' experience in the German market.
The aim of the initiative is to provide pan-European retail coverage and to optimise client synergies and market knowledge of the three businesses. The combined force of Retail Partners Europe will now provide retail investment, asset management and advisory services in the markets of France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
