“We are very pleased to be bringing an experienced professional like Tobias Kassner on board as our research expert,” said Jan Dietrich Hempel, Co-Managing Director of GARBE Industrial Real Estate. “Our clients – mainly institutional investors but also our tenants – expect us not only to make well-founded decisions based on data and expertise, but also to provide them with advice and orientation in markets that are sometimes difficult to predict.
