“We are very happy to act as a co-exclusive broker for ProLogis in Hungary,” said Adrienne Konthur, MBA, MRICS, managing director of CB Richard Ellis in Hungary. “Our business relationship with ProLogis in Hungary and throughout Europe has been mutually beneficial in the past, and we expect to see it grow even stronger in the future.”
“Working with ProLogis has always been a professional experience,” said Charles Taylor, MRICS, partner and managing director of Cushman & Wakefield in Hungary. “We are pleased that this agreement has solidified our already strong working relationship. As a co-exclusive agent we can act on behalf of ProLogis to provide added value to our customers, which is a shared best interest.”
“Signing the agreements with CB Richard Ellis and Cushman & Wakefield enables us to focus even more on our professional client service and property management,” said László Kemenes, vice president of ProLogis in Hungary. “Although the agreement is exclusive, I would like to emphasize that all inquiries from any other consultants are still very welcome through the co-exclusive agents. We firmly believe that this cooperation will be rewarding for both our customers and the agents, and ProLogis as well”.
