US residential investor Greystar has strengthened its European team with two recent hires. The company has already made strides into the UK market, acquiring both private rented sector and student housing investments, and is looking to grow further both in the UK and in other key European markets.
Steve Zeeman has been appointed to lead Greystar’s growth into the Dutch and German housing markets, looking for both student housing and private rented sector opportunities. He joins from Dutch asset manager PGGM, where he was a senior investment manager.
And Mark Allnut has joined the group to help drive forward its growth in the UK private rented sector. Allnut was previously at housing assocation Thames Valley Housing, where he led that company’s creation of Fizzy Living, its dedicated PRS brand.
