Catella IM Benelux (CIMB) has named Maurits Olde Meule as Managing Director with effect from 1 October. Olde Meule joined Catella in 2018 as Asset Manager and was promoted to Director of Asset Management in 2019, in which capacity he also became a member of the management team of Catella IM Benelux. He previously worked for CBRE as Commercial Manager, Asset Services.
In addition to his new role as MD, Olde Meule will continue as Director Asset Management for now and remain the point of contact for all clients and employees. He will manage the Catella IM Benelux activities from its offices in Amsterdam and Maastricht.
Olde Meule succeeds Voäs Brouns, who recently announced his intention to step down to make way for a new generation of managers at Catella. Voäs Brouns joined Catella IM Benelux in 2017 as Managing Director and managed the CIMB activities together with Xavier Jongen. Under their leadership, Catella IM Benelux has grown into a real estate company with a portfolio of residential and commercial real estate of more than €1.4 billion and a key player in Catella’s European residential network which has assets under management of €4 billion.
Maurits Olde Meule, Managing Director Catella IM Benelux, said: “Our business continues to grow thanks to the tailwinds from increasing demand for affordable and sustainable residential rental properties in the markets in which we operate, and we are at the forefront of addressing the growing needs of institutional investors in this segment. We have many talented people in our organisation and several exciting new initiatives in the pipeline. It is my ambition to continue to build upon the success of Voäs and the rest of the team and, on behalf of us all, I would like to thank him for his contribution and commitment to the business and wish him all the best in future.”
