Advisory and management firm MI (Multiple Impact) has appointed Alexander Watson as COO.

Watson, who also joins the firm as a shareholder and board member, was formerly acquisition manager of a Belgian Healthcare REIT, responsible for sourcing investments in mainly the Dutch market. Based upon his experience and knowledge he will further develop and strengthen MI’s investment advisory services within the European market.

He will be responsible for the firm’s day-to-day operations and will also identify new business opportunities, including off-market transactions, and deliver expertise and develop relationships.

“We are delighted to have him on board and are confident about the alignment he will create in the value chain towards future-proof real estate solutions and partnerships,” said Ron van Bloois, MI’s founder and CEO.

“My purpose is to support the creation of a mature pan-European senior housing and healthcare real estate market from a real estate perspective,” Watson added. “This requires strong partnerships between operators, investors and developers, state-of-the-art real estate and the cross-border exchange of operational knowledge.”
