Frank Punte has joined the Panattoni Netherlands team as of 2 August as director of technical development.
In his new role, Punte, together with Eelco Verweij, is responsible for coordinating contacts with the public sector, contractors, architects, engineering and other technical consultancy companies.
The Panattoni team now consists of 11 colleagues who are currently supervising eight projects. Panattoni launched in the Netherlands in 2020.
Jeroen Gerritsen, managing director of Panattoni Netherlands said: 'Due to the growth we have experienced in the Netherlands since our start in 2020, strengthening our team with the aim of completing and delivering our current projects, is important. With Frank joining our team, we can meet our growth ambitions for 2021 and beyond, even better.
'Frank is a colleague who fits perfectly into the DNA of our company. An approachable environment in which every customer receives our full personal attention and our team spirit is also part of our entry ticket to the market.'
Punte has over 30 years of experience in various aspects of real estate. His expertise lies in the field of construction technology and the development and construction of distribution centres, as well as acquiring locations.
Punte said: 'The growth which Panattoni is putting on the map in the Netherlands as – a new kid on the block- is evident, but it was also the market approach and the mentality within the current team that appealed to me.
'It suits me as a person to give 100% to reach the goals and objectives and to come up with creative solutions in a team in order to serve the customers to their full satisfaction. A no-nonsense approach with a drive to get things perfectly done.'
