Bouwinvest appoints new directors for business development and North American investments
Bouwinvest Real Estate Investors has appointed Gijs Plantinga as director strategic business development.
Following this internal move, Robert Wagenaar will take over Plantinga’s former role as the new director of North American investments. In this new role, Plantinga will contribute to Bouwinvest’s strategic positioning, initiate new investment products, and develop and expand alliances with national and international investors. His background in the European and North American real estate investment markets will be extremely useful in this regard. This position was previously held by Marleen Bosma, who was appointed chief client officer (CCO) at Bouwinvest last year.
Wagenaar will assume responsibility for Bouwinvest’s North American investments, working from the head office in Amsterdam. His colleague Bert van den Hoek will remain the first point of contact at the firm’s New York office. Wagenaar previously held the position of head of portfolio operations
