Savills expands agency team in The Netherlands with logistics experts

02 September 2016

International real estate advisor Savills has recruited two logistics specialists to strengthen its agency team in The Netherlands. Niek Poppelaars and Douglas van Oers, both with over ten years of industry experience, join Savills as associate directors responsible for industrial agency services.
 
As a senior property advisor at a global real estate firm, Niek Poppelaars specialised in the industrial and logistics sector. Douglas van Oers was previously employed as a commercial manager at David Hart Group, where he focused on asset management, leasing services and advising on sales and acquisitions of industrial and logistics property. Earlier in his career he worked within the industrial team at DTZ.
 
The new recruits will work alongside Savills experts in capital markets, property management and building & project consultancy teams.
 
Wouter Stevens, Director of Agency, Savills The Netherlands, comments: “The strengthening of our agency team is in line with our business strategy to enhance our national profile as a full-service provider in assisting and advising landlords and occupiers within the logistics sector. We are delighted to have Niek and Douglas on board.”
 
Clive Pritchard, Head of Savills The Netherlands, comments: ‘As retail trends lean  increasingly towards a dependence on e-commerce, heightened demand for industrial space means that expansion in this sector is very much a focus of our European growth strategy. More than any other asset class, the industrial and logistics sector is a cross-border operation by nature and not only does this recruitment reinforce our position in The Netherlands, but with strong industrial teams in Germany, Poland and the UK, we will be able to assist clients with their pan-European logistics requirements.“
