Mr. Jandous also took part in the development of LaSalle’s Central European business and executed upon a number of transactions across the region.
Prior to joining LaSalle, Mr. Jandous worked as a Business Development Director at APS Holding SE, a privately-held investment house specialized in non-performing loans. Before APS, Mr. Jandous managed refinancing and subsequent wind-down of the AHI Group real estate portfolio and took part in developing the logistics portfolio of Point Park Properties (P3) and its predecessor, Pinnacle CEE.
