Allianz Real Estate has opened a new office in Vienna and appointed a new director to help strengthen the company’s presence across the region. Thomas Villadsen was named Director of Austria and Central & Eastern Europe (CEE).
Villadsen was most recently the CEO of Belgrade-based MPC Properties. Prior to this, he was the general manager and senior vice president for TK Development in Prague.
Annette Kröger, CEO of Allianz Real Estate North & Central Europe said: “With established assets in Slovakia, Slovenia, Poland, Hungary and Austria, Allianz already controls a significant regional real estate portfolio with many prime assets. We are now looking to build on this momentum with the opening of an office in Vienna.”
