CPI Property Group to take over management of its 15 shopping centres

Luxembourg/Prague, 30th January 2019 – CPI Property Group, the biggest shopping centre owner by area in the Czech Republic, is gearing up for a major move that will underpin its position as a real estate leader in Central and Eastern Europe. From 2020, the Group will take over the management of its shopping centres in Czech Republic, currently managed by third parties.

The shopping centres owned by CPI Property Group (CPI PG) have to date been managed by Cushman & Wakefield, CBRE and Reflecta. “We greatly appreciate the work put in over the years by our third-party managers. They’ve contributed significantly to the development of our shopping centres,” said Petr Brabec, Head of Asset Management, Shopping Centres, at CPI Property Group. “The planned change is fully in line with the Group’s long-term strategy and it is not a result of any dissatisfaction with the existing arrangement,” added Brabec.

This key property management decision taken by CPI PG reflects long-term plans.“It is the next logical step to take. Our continued growth brings along new demands and new skills. We are confident that taking over the management of our shopping centres will enable us to expand our property management knowhow,” said Jakub Korf, Director of Property and Facility Management at CPI PG.

The process of taking over the management of the Group’s 15 shopping centres, located in Czech Republic, is expected to take around two years. The process will start in January 2020 and it is expected that it will be completed during 2021. “We face an enormous challenge. What motivates us is that this step will enable us to provide a comprehensive set of services across all segments represented in our portfolio,” explained Jakub Korf.
