Javier Inchauspe has been nominated Scannell Properties’ general manager for Spain. The American development and real estate investment company is specialised in large industrial and logistic projects. Inchauspe has more than 20 years of experience in the Spanish real estate and logistic segments.
The new manager’s goal will be to seek investment opportunities so as to provide Scannell Properties’ clients with sustainable logistic assets in prime locations.
The nomination represents one more step forward for the company in terms of its strategic growth in Europe, where, in the last few months, new professionals were incorporated to open new markets in Germany, France, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Italy.
Established in 1990, Scannell Properties is specialised in developing key-in-hand speculative projects in the United States, Canada and Europe with a total of 7.8 million sqm and more than 360 concluded projects.
After obtaining his degree in Business from Bordeaux’s Graduate School of Business, Inchauspe held several positions of responsibility in real estate companies within the logistic and industrial segments. In 2005, he joined ING Real Estate Development and was charged with analysing industrial projects for the Spanish market. In 2007 he signed for Gazeley, where he worked as the company’s development director. During this period, he secured his training with an Executive Development Programme, conducted by IESE. From Gazeley, he went to Merlin Properties, in 2015, seeking to boost the REIT’s growth.
«I am delighted for joining Scannell Properties at a time when the logistic market is more dynamic and with a record contracting volume, two million sqm in 2020. The boost the pandemic gave ecommerce opens the stage for a scene full of opportunities. Amongst the market’s boosters, the aggregated chains in terms of industrial and retail supply will keep acting as great catalysts for the growth of the logistics market during the coming years», commented the manager.
Amaury Gariel, the firm’s manager for Europe, added that «we are very excited to welcome Javier Inchauspe to Scannell Properties, Spain is a strategic country for our European development. His deep knowledge of the Spanish market will be essential to offer our clients new logistic assets across Europe at a reasonable pace. Javier will work with colleagues in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, where very significant construction projects are already under way».
