Developer and owner of semi-industrial and logistics real estate VGP appointed Michal Bujárek (37) as its new Country Manager for Slovakia.

Michal Bujárek has been working in the real estate market for more than 10 years, during which time he has gained extensive experience in several international companies. In his new role at VGP, Bujárek will be responsible for the complete development of the company’s business activities in that domestic market.

The VGP group already owns three sites in Slovakia, including the VGP Park Bratislava project (phases I and II), which, upon completion and with a total lettable area of 380,000 sqm, will become one of the most important parks not only in Slovakia but in the entire VGP portfolio. The Group operates in a total of 19 European countries and is continuing to expand successfully.

“As the interest in logistics real estate grows, our team also is gradually expanding. We view Slovakia as a very promising market, where, in addition to the extensive project in Bratislava, we also own logistics parks in Zvolen and Malacky, and more are being prepared. This is one of the several reasons why I believe that Michal Bujárek’s experience and expertise in industrial real estate will be of great benefit to us,” comments Matthias Sander, Chief Operating Officer for Eastern Europe.

Michal Bujárek holds a master’s degree from the Faculty of Finance and Accounting at the University of Economics in Prague. He has been involved in the real estate segment throughout his career, right from his graduation. For the past three years, he was Business Development Manager at CTP, where he was responsible for development activities in the Czech Republic. Before that, he worked for about the same length of time at the real estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield as a consultant in the industrial team.
