Adrian conducted the company’s first office portfolio transaction in the region – a sale of four buildings located in two Polish regional cities. This was 2015's biggest office divestment realized in CEE and the company's biggest ever transaction in the region. In 2014 Adrian was responsible for sourcing buyers for seven office buildings in Central and Eastern Europe and executing the transaction process. Adrian started his professional career in 1997 as an analyst at Gerald Eve International, going on to work for Knight Frank in Warsaw, and GE Capital Golub Real Estate.
