Garbe Industrial Real Estate is strengthening its research division with the hire of Tobias Kassner as its new head of Research.
A real estate economist and logistics expert, the 40-year-old director has over 12 years of experience in the sector. Since 2007, he has served in various capacities at bulwiengesa in Berlin and Hamburg, most recently as a partner and head of logistics, industrial and corporate real estate.
‘We are very pleased to be bringing an experienced professional like Tobias Kassner on board as our research expert,’ said Jan Dietrich Hempel, co-managing director of Garbe Industrial Real Estate.
‘Our clients - mainly institutional investors but also our tenants - expect us not only to make well-founded decisions based on data and expertise, but also to provide them with advice and orientation in markets that are sometimes difficult to predict.
'Our investments have to perform well over decades. A temporary crisis mustn’t leave a lasting impact. That’s why we are continuously expanding our research capacities.’
