Ipek Kuru named head of Acquisition team; Uwe Freitag named head of Transaction team
BNP Paribas Real Estate Investment Management (REIM) Germany is strengthening its team around property acquisition and disposal. Authorised signatory Ipek Kuru (31) is now at the helm of the Acquisition team, which is responsible for identifying investment properties. Authorised signatory Uwe Freitag (50) will be in charge of the Transaction team, which focuses on property acquisition. Both team heads will report to Isabella Chacón Troidl, Chief Investment Officer and member of the BNP Paribas REIM Germany management in charge of the Transaction division.
This structure will enable the newly created teams under the leadership of Ipek Kuru and Uwe Freitag to dedicate themselves to intensified specialisation, visibility and effectiveness in deal sourcing as well as more efficient transaction processes. This new structure is BNP Paribas REIM Germany’s response to ongoing high demand for indirect real estate investment opportunities and the strong capital inflow being poured into the company’s investment vehicles.
“We offer a highly diverse investment universe that includes a variety of asset classes like office, logistics, healthcare and residential. Our new team structure will enable us to further expand our excellent knowledge of the market and be more agile, efficient and focused on optimised processes when it comes to acquiring properties for our investors,” explains Isabella Chacón Troidl.
Ipek Kuru has been working on the BNP Paribas REIM Transaction team since 2016 and became an authorised signatory on 1 February 2021. A leading real estate expert, she earned her Master’s degree in International Real Estate from the University of Glasgow.
Uwe Freitag has years of experience in the transaction business and has been a member of the BNP Paribas REIM Transaction team since 2018. He was also named an authorised signatory on 1 February 2021.
Both teams are currently comprised of 13 members. Eight new members have been brought on board since 2016 to keep up with the growing transaction volume, and new additions are planned.
