Management Team

We have set up our organisational structure in a way that increases speed, agility and focus as a platform, while maintaining Redevco’s strengths in local markets through our country-based asset management and specialist teams across Europe. The four Redevco Board members oversee the different functional areas within the business, and each of these functions focuses on a particular part of the business as it prepares and implements Board and Management Team decisions in their respective areas of expertise. This structure helps to maintain clear responsibility and accountability for day-to-day operational management.

The Management Team reaches decisions collectively so that they can be properly and speedily implemented across all of Redevco’s activities.
