New Director at DTZ

Agnieszka Skoroszewska has joined DTZ's Warsaw office to work with the Polish industrial team as a director. Skoroszewska has extensive experience in working in real estate in the CEE region, having previously worked for Pinnacle Poland as leasing and marketing director and Parkridge CE Development as leasing director. She is a graduate of Warsaw University.

QPG Hires New Staff

Developer Quinlan Private Golub (QPG) has been taking on new staff. Avi Nota, a veteran with over 30 years of experience in real estate, last year took up the post of director for new-market development, starting with Lithuania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania, and subsequently to cover Central, Eastern and Southern Europe.

QPG's new team also includes Zeev Kaufman, the new country manager for Croatia, and Rafi Timor, the new country manager for Romania. Kaufman worked in real estate in South and Central America before joining QPG in February. Timor joined QPG in December and has over 30 years of experience in managing large projects in Israel, Europe, Africa, the United States, and Russia.
The new country manager for Lithuania is Niram Goldbroom, who previously worked for Canada-Israel and Brinks, and joined QPG in January.

Changes at ProLogis

ProLogis, the world's largest owner, manager and developer of distribution facilities, has appointed Ben Bannatyne as head of the Central and Eastern European business. Dr. Michael de Jong-Douglas has been appointed to a new role with ProLogis in Asia.

Bannatyne joins ProLogis from Jones Lang LaSalle, where he was the managing director for Central Europe. In this role, he was responsible for Poland, Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic, including the daily management of the Warsaw office and operations in Prague and Budapest.

Bannatyne has more than 16 years of experience in the real estate industry, of which the past 11 years have been spent in Central Europe with Jones Lang LaSalle. Bannatyne graduated from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland with a degree in land economy. He is a trained chartered surveyor.

"Ben has a proven track record of leading this type of business in one of the fastest growing regions of Europe," said Gary E. Anderson, ProLogis president for Europe and the Middle East. Bannatyne succeeds De Jong-Douglas who, in recognition of his performance in Central and Eastern Europe, is relocating to Asia to assume a role with wider geographic responsibility. He will remain in Europe until the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition.

"For the past five years, Michael has led our successful business operations in Central and Eastern Europe, growing our platform to 3.2 million square meters," said Anderson. "His efforts have positioned us well to expand our customer relationships and grow our leading share of the market in this region. I am confident Michael will continue to deliver strong results in his new role."

Promotion at Jones Lang LaSalle

Jones Lang LaSalle has appointed John Duckworth, MD of its EMEA Corporate Solutions business, as the new managing director of its Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) operations covering offices in four countries. He will be based in Warsaw, transferring from London. Jones Lang LaSalle is a market leader in CEE, employing 150 people, with offices in Warsaw, Prague, Budapest, and Bucharest.

Jones Lang LaSalle's EMEA CEO, Alastair Hughes, said, "It is great to have someone of the caliber of John Duckworth moving over to Warsaw to drive the further growth of our market-leading business in Central and Eastern Europe. John's strong track record in working with occupiers and investors, along with his proven business management skills, will provide an ideal fit. His excellent links with corporate clients will also allow us to build on the opportunity we see to continue to enhance and deepen our Corporate Solutions business in this part of Europe, following the ongoing strong levels of inward investment into countries such as Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania by multinational corporations of all types."
