Peter Wojtusiak is the new CEO of APS Real Estate, which is active within Central and Eastern Europe, and part of APS Holding. Peter is responsible for investment transaction origination and execution as well as overseeing two divisions — Casazela, which specialises in real-estate portfolio management for banks and institutions, and currently manages real estate with a value of over €150 million; and Syndre, which provides an extensive range of valuation services to private and institutional clients as well as banks and other financial institutions.
Peter has over 20 years of experience in the fields of design, construction and real estate investment, during which he has developed a comprehensive view of the industry and gained valuable knowledge about the real estate industry across the residential, retail, office and industrial sectors. Prior to joining APS Real Estate, Peter held the position of Associate Director Capital Markets at CBRE, transacting over €600 million worth of real estate from value-add to core prime assets. He studied Architecture at the University of Adelaide in Australia and holds an MBA in Real Estate and Construction Management from UCEM in the United Kingdom.
Martin Machoň, CEO and Owner at APS Holding, says: “Several successful acquisitions proved that building a strong real-estate division focused on residential, office and retail sectors is a logical step within the APS group’s development. Peter is a strategic reinforcement that will help us with expansion and creating a network of agencies across the Central and Eastern Europe.”
Peter Wojtusiak, CEO of APS Real Estate, added: “As a part of APS Real Estate, one of my tasks is to respond to current real estate trends.

Whilst the traditional retail sector in general, both in CE as well as in other parts of Europe, is currently experiencing some challenging times, not least because of the exponential growth of e-commerce, we believe that retail parks are a more resilient retail format especially in smaller regional towns in CE.”
