MLP Group, a leading developer active on the European warehouse property market, is strengthening its German team. Taking on the role of Head of Asset & Property Management, Sebastian Schiffer will oversee the management of MLP Group’s property portfolio and administration of its facilities on the German market.

Sebastian Schiffer will support MLP Group’s vigorous growth in Germany. His responsibilities as the Head of Asset & Property Management will include managing the property portfolio, with a key focus on coordinating the facility administration, providing support to tenants and leasing of space.

With 18 years of experience in asset management within the commercial real estate sector of Germany and Europe, Sebastian Schiffer brings a wealth of expertise to MLP Group. His professional journey includes roles at GPT Halverton GmbH, Apollo asset management chartered surveyors GmbH, Goodman Germany GmbH and Provinzial Rheinland Versicherung AG. Most recently, he contributed significantly to the portfolio’s occupancy rate at Mileway Germany GmbH. Sebastian holds a master’s degree in business law from the Technical University of Kaiserslautern and an MBA from HTW in Berlin.

“MLP Group takes a well-rounded approach to growth, focusing on sustainability. What sets it apart from other players is the ‘build and hold’ strategy with respect to the property portfolio. This approach is highly valued by tenants, who receive comprehensive support throughout the lease term. In my new role, I intend to maintain a client-centric mindset, driving continued strong growth of the property portfolio,” said Sebastian Schiffer, Head of Asset & Property Management.

“We’ve been actively growing our presence in the real estate market of the DACH region (encompassing Germany, Austria and Switzerland) since 2017. Ongoing projects include five business and logistics parks in Germany and one in Austria, with more developments in the pipeline. Strong expansion of the scale of our projects is coupled with a reinforcement of our team. Sebastian Schiffer brings with him extensive experience in asset and property management on the logistics and commercial real estate market, making him a valuable addition to our team. His expertise will play a crucial role in supporting MLP Group’s expansion in Germany, a market of strategic importance to us,” stressed Martin Birkert, Country Manager Germany.

“Germany is the largest and most important market for warehouse property in Europe. Our approach is to consistently launch new projects in that country. We are just about to commence work on MLP Spreenhagen, our second development near Berlin. Further projects in the pipeline include MLP Business Park Schalke in Gelsenkirchen and MLP Idstein. We are also in advanced negotiations for the purchase of additional land in Hesse and the North Rhine-Westphalia region. This expansion solidifies our position among the forefront of developers active in the European warehouse property market,” stated Radosław T. Krochta, President of the MLP Group Management Board.

Germany is a strategic direction of MLP Group’s foreign expansion plans, with assets built in the DACH region expected to represent approximately 50% of the Group’s overall property portfolio within several years. MLP Group prioritises sustainable development, and its standard is to have all newly built facilities on the German market DGNB certified as Gold or Platinum. The goal is to achieve environmental sustainability and a net zero carbon footprint by 2026.
