BNP Paribas Real Estate has appointed hotel expert Artyom Perevedentsev to its international investment group (IIG) to respond to a growing demand for cross border opportunities in the hotel market.
Fluent in six languages, Perevedentsev will be based in London and brings high-level experience in the hospitality sector having worked for a series of renowned real estate and investment firms with well-established hotel portfolios.
Etienne Prongué, deputy CEO, BNP Paribas Real Estate, UK said: 'We are excited to welcome Artyom to the team at this critical time as the hotel market continues to grow and diversify.
'A number of our hotel clients are pan-European, either as investors or occupiers, so offering a joined up holistic view across the continent is imperative.'
Perevedentsev's focus will be to grow the links between the hotel brokerage teams in the UK and across Europe as well as the international investment platforms in the Middle and Far East.
This cross border role is the first of many new planned hires for BNP Paribas Real Estate as it continues to build its European alternative capital markets teams, the firm said. Perevedentsev has previously worked for Eastdil Secured, where he was involved in a number of high profile hotel portfolio and single asset deals across Europe.
