PRADERA APPOINTS JOHN HOPKINS AS FINANCE DIRECTOR

Pradera has expanded its senior management team with the appointment of John Hopkins to the position of Finance Director for its Pradera European Retail Parks Fund (“PERP”).

John brings a wealth of financial accounting and management experience that will further strengthen Pradera’s team as it pursues its ambitious plans for growth across Europe and Asia. Based in London, John will have responsibility for all financial aspects of PERP, which holds the portfolio of retail assets that Pradera acquired from IKEA Centres in April 2017.

Prior to joining Pradera, John has worked with leading firms including Ares Management, Baring Asset Management and Societe Generale.

David Fletcher, Chief Executive of Pradera, commented: “We are delighted to welcome John to the business. His appointment demonstrates Pradera’s commitment to providing clients with best in class specialist fund and asset management services, and is a testament to our growing reputation as the go-to partner for retail real estate fund and asset management across all retail asset classes.

“His experience spans a variety of sectors including real estate, asset management and investment banking. This will complement Pradera’s existing senior management team and provide strength and knowledge to ensure the business continues to expand significantly in the future,” Fletcher continued.

John’s appointment marks the latest initiative following a significant minority investment in Pradera by multi-family office LJ Partnership in April 2016. That deal signalled Pradera’s plans to expand and take its trusted platform into untapped segments of the retail property market and new geographies.

Pradera has since launched PERP and established Pradera Retail Asia, a joint venture with Macquarie Retail Real Estate Management Limited (MIRA). Last month it added a fourth retail property in China – Mosaic Chongqing Metro Park – to assets already managed in Qingdao, Xi’an and Shanghai, with a total gross leasable area (GLA) of 200,000 sqm. This increasingly global perspective sees Pradera sharing best practice to further improve performance and returns in a €3.3 billion portfolio that now includes 60 shopping centres and retail parks worldwide.
