Globalworth has named Dimitris Raptis as the interim CEO of Globalworth Poland Real Estate N.V. (GPRE). At the same time, he retains his current responsibilities within the group, as Group Deputy CEO and Chief Investment Officer (CIO).
“After we made the strategic decision to acquire majority stake in GPRE almost a year ago, we continued to announce new acquisitions of high-quality office buildings worth a total of EUR 680 million and potentially add value to our portfolio. In addition, in nearly 6 months, we became the leaders of the Polish office market,” said Dimitris Raptis, Globalworth Poland’s interim CEO.
GPRE’s CEO position was previously held by Małgorzata Turek, who was responsible for implementing the company’s strategy on the Polish market following the acquisition of the majority stake in GPRE.
Dimitris Raptis will take over the position of interim CEO after approval by the company’s Board of Directors.
”The time spent on the Globalworth team was a very beautiful adventure for me. The last year has been a success for the company and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to work with this incredible team in a transition period. I wish them a lot of success in the future and I am sure they will be able to meet any goals they will propose and will continue to strengthen the leadership that Globalworth holds both in Poland and Romania,” added Malgorzata Turek.
In addition, Globalworth Poland continues to further strengthen its team through new appointments and organizational changes. Lukasz Duczkowski joined the company in early December as Head of Investments. With more than 10 years of experience on the real estate financing and investment market in Poland, he has previously worked in HSBC, Colliers International and, most recently, Griffin Real Estate.
Also, Artur Apostol, who served as Head of Investments during 2017, was Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Globalworth Poland, and Rafal Pomorski will continue to be Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and member of Executive Committee.
With over 20 years of experience in financial services and real estate investment management, Dimitris Raptis has been Deputy CEO and CIO of the Globalworth Group since its inception in 2013. As GPRE Interim CEO, he will be responsible for overseeing the implementation of group strategy on the Polish market.
In Romania and Poland, the company’s portfolio has a total value of over EUR 2 billion.
