Henderson Park, the European real estate investment platform recently founded by Nick Weber, has announced that it has appointed Gijs Molenaar as head of asset management.
Henderson Park launched in September 2016 having raised $500m from three cornerstone investors and has subsequently acquired Paris’ largest hotel, Le Méridien Étoile, as well as a 172 unit PRS portfolio in central London.
In his new role, Molenaar will oversee the asset management of all of Henderson Park’s investments, working with its investment and asset management teams and reporting directly to Nick Weber.
Molenaar has 17 years of experience in real estate asset management in Europe, and joins Henderson Park after three years as a senior vice president at Cerberus Capital in London, where he was responsible for its Pan-European Non Performing Loans and Direct Asset Structures. This included overseeing the asset management of over £10bn of assets in Cerberus’ European “top of the book” and complex asset portfolios.
Previously, Molenaar was a director of asset management at Hammerson in London from 2012 to 2014, prior to which he spent three years a development director at Redevco. Gijs received executive management training at the London Business School and holds an MSc. from Delft University of Technology.
Weber, founding partner of Henderson Park, said: “Having already made two significant acquisitions and with a strong pipeline of further investment opportunities, we have appointed Gijs to focus specifically on the business plan implementation of our key assets. As head of asset management Gijs will assist and advise our deal teams while working closely with and overseeing our local operating partners as we seek to create value for our clients.”
