Montea appoints Xavier Van Reeth as Country Director Belgium

People on the move

As from April, Xavier Van Reeth will join Montea as Country Director Belgium. In this role, he will lead the Belgian team that’s responsible for managing existing clients as well as the further growth of the property portfolio in Belgium through in-house developments, sale-and-rentbacks and strategic partnerships with both landowners and developers.

Xavier Van Reeth has more than 15 years of experience in the logistics real estate sector. For the past 10 years, he has worked as Head of Industrial & Logistics at CBRE Belgium. He will be replaced at CBRE by Stefan De Pauw who started his career in the company in 2019. De Pauw previously spent over 8 years at JLL, another of the big four company in real estate consultancy.

Jo De Wolf, CEO Montea, underlines " A separate country director for Belgium gives us the opportunity to better focus on delivering excellent service to Belgian clients, combined with the further growth of the real estate portfolio."

Peter Demuynck, current CCO of Montea and active within the company for more than 12 years, has decided to focus on a personal project aimed at young people with emotional and/or mental problems and in this sense will partially wind down his current activities within Montea. All tasks around business development and asset management in Belgium will be taken over by Xavier Van Reeth from April 2023.
