MLP Group expands and strengthens its Management Board
The Supervisory Board of MLP Group made a decision to strengthen the Company’s management structures. The newly appointed members of the Management Board are Monika Dobosz, responsible for the financial division, and Agnieszka Góźdź, whose remit covers the leasing area. Accordingly, the Group’s top management has been expanded to consist of five people.
Monika Dobosz joined MLP Group in 2009, starting as head of the financial reporting department. In 2014, she was appointed to the position of Chief Financial Officer. Her responsibilities in this role include financial reporting, the budgeting process for the Group and its subsidiaries, arranging new sources of financing for the Group’s projects, and supervising the accounting, controlling and reporting teams. Monika Dobosz has more than two decades of professional experience in finance and accounting, of which 14 years have been spent in the real estate industry. Prior to joining MLP Group, she worked for Fadesa Polnord Poland, Parker Hannifin as Deputy Chief Accountant. She is a graduate of the Poznań University of Economics, where she studied Banking, and the Warsaw School of Economics, where her principal field of study was Financial Reporting.
The primary focus of Agnieszka Góźdź’s responsibility is the commercialisation of logistic parks and land banking in Poland. She also supports MLP Group’s entry into new European markets and business growth. She became part of the MLP Group team seven years ago. Her experience in the warehouse space market goes back 16 years. Prior to joining MLP Group, she worked as an expert for leading firms of property advisers, including: Cushman & Wakefield, CA IMMO Real Estate Management Poland, AXI IMMO GROUP, and King Sturge. She is a graduate of the Private School of Business and Administration in Warsaw. She also completed postgraduate studies in commercial property management at the Warsaw University of Technology.
“The decision to expand our Management Board was prompted by rapid growth of MLP Group. Over the past years since we went public, we have multiplied the Company’s value and our market capitalisation is already close to PLN 1.5bn. The Group is developing a European platform of leading-edge business and logistics parks. We have a presence in the Polish, German, Austrian and Romanian markets and our property portfolio comprises 19 centres with a target space of 1.6 million sqm. With a number of reservation agreements in place, we are able to purchase more land to accommodate our pipeline of logistics projects in Poland and Western Europe. In the coming years we will concentrate even more on city logistics projects, which offer strong potential for market growth responding to the needs of the evolving e-commerce. The addition to our Management Board of new members charged with finance and project commercialisation will facilitate and speed up decision-making with further fast-paced growth of our operational scale,” said Radosław T. Krochta, President of the Management Board of MLP Group S.A.
MLP Group remains on a robust financial footing and its business continues on a strong growth trajectory. For the first half of this year, the Group, developing its operations in Poland, Germany, Austria and Romania, posted its all-time best lease results. Plans are under way to expand its foothold into new markets and to further vigorously increase the scale of operations. The property developer is also consistent in pursuing projects designed to reduce the adverse environmental impact of its business. In line with the Company’s standard practice, BREEAM certification with a rating of Very Good or higher is obligatory for all its new projects. MLP Group’s sustainability strategy also provides for adapting its existing facilities to meet the green certification requirements.
