GARBE appoints new head of research

GARBE Industrial Real Estate has named Tobias Kassner as its new head of research, to strengthen the division with an eye to meeting future market requirements. 

Kassner, 40, has over 12 years of experience in real estate economics and logistics. Since 2007, he has served in various capacities at bulwiengesa AG in Berlin and Hamburg, most recently as a partner and head of logistics, industrial and corporate real estate. Due to the companies’ long-standing cooperation, Kassner knows GARBE very well.

“We are very pleased to be bringing an experienced professional like Tobias Kassner on board as our research expert,” says Jan Dietrich Hempel, co-managing director of GARBE. “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.”
