The consultancy company in the commercial real estate market has been consistently strengthening and expanding its industrial and logistics team for several years. In mid-February, Tomasz Arent took over management of the department.

Tomasz Arent took up the position of the Head of Industrial & Logistics at BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland. In recent years, he occupied high-level managerial positions, which put him in charge of development and business projects carried out by leading players in the logistics real estate market, first in the Goodman Group and later in GLP Poland. By working on the side of investors, developers, asset managers and funds, Tomasz has gained extensive and diverse experience in projects carried out for customers who used the entire range of services and solutions available within the logistics real estate market. The new director has also worked within the real estate structures of the IKEA Group.

- A new hand has been dealt in logistics, among others due to the pandemic. Companies today are facing the challenges presented by the pace and scope of market changes, increasing focus on sustainable development and search for new business opportunities. If we want to effectively support them in finding the best solutions, we need knowledge, experience, the ability to see the big picture and to act efficiently as a team. Only top-notch experts and best players such as Tomasz and Igor can provide this. From our point of view, this is a unique situation — we are adding Tomasz as a valuable asset to the company and at the same time, we can still play in one team with Igor, who has been developing our logistics business since 2018. - said Erik Drukker, CEO at BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland.

- I am delighted to join such a strong, tight-knit team and believe that my experience will add value that will help us carry out ambitious projects and succeed together. - said Tomasz Arent, the new Head of Industrial & Logistics.
