Jan Chudzynski

Jan was the co-head of Gerald Eve Poland from 1992 to 1995. Together with Michael Roskelly, he built this organization into the leading Polish real estate services provider at that time, with a staff approaching 30 and a completed site acquisition programme in excess of 150 properties over a three year period. During the mid to late 1990s, he worked for Jones Lang Wootton as a partner based in its Warsaw office specialising in the industrial sector.

During the early 2000s, Jan helped set up Woodsford Properties’ Europa Park logistics centre development south of Warsaw, working with it to acquire approximately 120 ha of logistics development land. He then provided their management team with services in support of their development of this site for close to 100,000 m² of warehousing space for companies such as Maersk, YKK, and FM Logistics. On the back of this, Jan then acted as a consultant to Gazeley Properties, helping it with its Polish logistics development market entry strategy. He then became a consultant for Ansbacher and was involved in its purchase of approximately 100 ha of land in Piotrkow Trybunalski and the subsequent building out of 50,000 m² of warehousing. Following the sale of this project to Europolis, Jan then joined this firm as a consultant working on its logistics strategy in Poland.

During the second half of the 2000s, Jan became Managing Director of Stanmark Asset Managers. In this role he recruited and oversaw a team to acquire and manage a portfolio of 11 properties throughout Poland on behalf of Tritax. During his career in Poland, Jan has also acted as a consultant to Infra Red (formerly HSBC) on their Polish acquisition strategy, as well as for Amhola.

More recently, Jan has been the lead advisor to Heron Polska for projects it is currently pursuing in Warsaw, in particular identifying and helping to acquire a 20 ha residential development site with the potential to develop up to 165,000 m² UFA. Jan has assisted Heron with all of its key pre-development activities for this project.

Jan’s role within Cadenza is to support its investment and site acquisition activities within Poland.
