The energy and talent of the team’s European operations mark it out as one of the most exciting and ambitious development companies on the continent today. France will be a central market for our continued growth, with significant opportunities and strong demand for Grade A logistics assets with strong sustainability credentials developed to a consistent design and standard.”
Ian Worboys, Managing Director and Head of European Logistics at Trammell Crow Company, said: “In its first 18 months in Europe, Trammell Crow Company has expanded rapidly and developed a first class team, of which Jean-Marc is the latest addition. Joining our pan-European leadership team of industry veterans, which includes Maite Inglis who was the firm’s first Director in France and Benelux and has been instrumental in our growth in the region so far, he will play an important role as we seek to emulate our success in the U.S. on the European continent. Jean-Marc marks the latest chapter as we reinforce our operations in the countries in which we’re established and as we prepare to expand further.”
