Urban logistics property developer and asset manager Chancerygate has announced plans to accelerate its expansion into Europe with the appointment of a European director.
Chancerygate entered the European market for the first time last year with the acquisition of a five-acre site near Dublin airport. The site was acquired in partnership with Bridges Fund Management.
To drive its expansion strategy forward, Chancerygate has appointed Jason Sharman as European director. He joins from Warsaw-based industrial and logistics developer and asset manager Tradeparcs.
Sharman has previously held partner and regional director roles at Burlington Real Estate, King Sturge and JLL.
In all three previous positions, he was responsible for identifying, securing and delivering asset management and development opportunities throughout western and central Europe.
Chancerygate managing director, Richard Bains, said: ‘We have identified significant opportunities for growth in the urban logistics market across Europe and believe now is the time to implement our expansion strategy on the continent.
Chancerygate currently has more than 3.2million sq ft of industrial space under construction or ready for development across 24 sites ranging from Bournemouth to Edinburgh.
