Eurofund Logistics Capital Partners (ELCP) has hired Diego González Hernando to serve as the new director of land acquisition for Spain and Portugal.
Hernando most recently worked at VGP, where he was a key component of their successful Iberian land acquisition strategy and directly contributed to the acquisition of more than 250,000 m2 over the previous two years.
With 12 years professional experience in real estate, he began his professional career working as an architect and urban planner at several studios and real estate developers dealing with industrial and other commercial projects.
Marco Galbusera, general director of ELCP for Spain and Portugal, commented: ‘The market cycle and timing is set to provide interesting opportunities in this next period, so we continue to position ourselves to capture this, with an increased focus on land and development. We are delighted to have persuaded Diego to join the team and capture the new opportunity. His land buying experience, track record and contacts are a perfect strategic fit to achieve the ambitious goals we have set for ELCP in Iberia.’
Hernando joins the company as it gears up for expansion across Iberia with new logistics warehouses.
ELCP has completed Amazon's first logistics centre in Girona and in the coming months will develop the Costco Wholesale’s first European fulfilment centre in Spain.
ELCP is a JV between European developer and asset manager Logistics Capital Partners and shopping centre developer, manager and investor Eurofund Group.
