Vastned appoint Alica van der Duin as Commercial Director

Further strengthening of the quality of the organisation

Vastned, the listed European property company focusing on 'venues for premium shopping', has appointed Alica van der Duin as Commercial Director.

She will join the company on 1 April 2016. In her new role, she will be responsible for Vastned's Dutch property portfolio, including the commercial aspects of the portfolio, acquisitions and divestments. She will be working closely with the Dutch property team. In addition, as Commercial Director she will play an important role in the acquisition process of premium city high street shops in the Netherlands and at a later stage also in the other markets in which Vastned operates. Alica will become part of the international account management team, and will report directly to CEO Taco de Groot.

Alica has extensive experience in the property sector; retail has been a key aspect of her career, first on the financing side and later in development and investment. She has also proved she can build successful teams. Over the past four years Alica was Retail Director with NSI in Hoofddorp. Before that, she was Senior Retail Property Developer with Provast and Real Estate Developer with ING Real Estate Development in The Hague. With ING Real Estate she held several positions.

Taco de Groot, Vastned CEO
I am delighted that Alica will join us as Commercial Director. She has extensive experience in asset and property management, and is proactive and hands-on. These are the right qualities to further improve the quality of the portfolio, both in the Netherlands and in the other markets, in this final phase of our transition.
