TCC selects head of European logistics capital markets

Trammell Crow Company (TCC), a global developer and investor in commercial real estate, has appointed Richard Fell as head of European logistics capital markets.

With extensive experience in European equity and debt origination, Fell joins TCC from Clarion Partners Europe, where he spent the past three years as vice president for investments.

In this role, he led on pan-European origination, negotiation and financing of existing leased, build-to-suit and speculative development logistics investment opportunities. He transacted €1.1 bn across France, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, the Czech Republic and Slovakia while at Clarion.

Ian Worboys, managing director and head of European logistics at TCC, said: 'Trammell Crow Company’s European operations are growing at a rapid pace and Richard’s arrival in the team will enable us to maintain and accelerate it further.

'As we target strategically important markets within the European logistics sector, including the UK, Germany, Austria, Spain, France, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Richard’s experience at prestigious pan-European investment firms will prove invaluable in tapping into new opportunities and markets.'

Previously, Fell worked in private equity roles for Brydell Partners, Curzon Advisers, and Tristan Capital Partners.

In his new role with TCC, Fell is responsible for identifying, structuring and securing debt and equity capital to support the joint-venture activity of TCC’s logistics development business across Europe. Richard will be based in London and will report directly to Trammell Crow Company’s chief investment officer, Tommy Lee.

Having launched in Europe in 2021, TCC has acquired three sites in the UK, two in Germany, three in Spain, and one in the Czech Republic, on which it will develop Grade A logistics assets.

Said Fell: 'Trammell Crow Company in Europe has the feel of a start-up and the backing of a global giant, making it one of the most interesting and dynamic logistics developers in the market today.

'With the team having secured sites in the UK, Germany, Spain and the Czech Republic already, and with a healthy pipeline in these markets and more, joining to support the team’s continued growth is a real privilege. We’re keen to explore a variety of financing types and joint venture partnerships as TCC further establishes itself as one of the continent’s leading developers.'
