Salvi Cals hired to head new Panattoni Paris office

Industrial property specialist Panattoni has opened an office in Paris and has appointed Salvi Cals managing director for the French market.

Cals has 15 years’ experience in commercial real estate in France, including more than 10 years at Prologis, where he oversaw its investment services team in Southern Europe from 2010 to 2014. He then joined the capital deployment team in charge of the Paris and Le Havre markets until 2020, when he became head of capital deployment for France.

Panattoni’s European arm now includes offices in Germany, UK, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia and now France, which it describes as ‘a dynamic and strategic market for investors and one where the end-customer demand is high’.
