Skanska Hungary welcomes new leader

Office Market

Marcin Łapiński has been appointed Managing Director at Skanska Property Hungary, as of January 1, 2016, according to a press release issued today. Łapiński currently holds the same position in Romania.

Zoltán Linczmayer and Aurelia Luca will be nominated for the newly established roles of Country Directors in the company’s Hungarian and Romanian units respectively, the announcement added.

The aforementioned changes aim to strengthen the organization and synergy of Skanska Commercial Development Europe in Central Europe and grow the business in those two very promising countries. 

Hungary and Romania are very important countries for Skanska in the company’s business plan, Skanska said. The office market in both locations is growing in terms of space delivered to the market, volume of leased space and the quality of offices on offer. In Budapest, Skanska has delivered six office buildings in Budapest to the market and the seventh - Nordic Light - is currently in development. 

According to “CEE Investment Report – Rising Stars 2015”, launched by Skanska Commercial Development Europe, JLL, Colliers International and the Association of Business Service Leaders (ABSL), Bucharest and Budapest are recognized as “rising stars” on the real estate investment transaction map of Europe. Both cities offer attractive return on investment along with huge market stability and low risk.

“Just as synergy and exchange of knowledge among Skanska’s units in different countries is important on an international level, on a local level it is crucial to properly understand the needs of people and users of our buildings. In Skanska, we focus primarily on employees of the companies that select our projects. Our goal is to provide comfortable office space that encourages efficiency... Furthermore, it is of crucial importance that our buildings fit in with the urban tissues and give the opportunity to handle business during work breaks and after work,” underlines Zoltán Linczmayer, future Country Director at Skanska Property Hungary.
