Heiko Richter joins US developer for expansion in Germany


The US-based development and investment firm Scannell Properties has recently announced the appointment of Heiko Richter, 53, as managing director to help the company gain a foothold in Germany. Richter took over Scannell’s German business development and growth last January. He will oversee key accounts and acquire properties for build-to-suit solutions and for speculative logistics and commercial projects. Richter held various management positions for Panattoni in Germany, including Director Germany, over the past eight years. Before that he worked for Prologis and DB Schenker. Scannell has developed over 270 projects to date in the USA and Canada. Its European expansion began with an office in London in 2018. Alongside Germany, the company is now also looking at France and the Netherlands.
