Aurelio Di Napoli joins Savills

Aurelio joined on 2 September and is based in Savills Headquarters at 33 Margaret Street in London.

He has over 15 years' experience in commercial real estate including capital transactions, fund management, client advisory, asset management and leasing - across Australia and Europe. He has held a number of senior positions, including at EG Funds Management and DTZ in Australia, the UK and Poland, where he was lead adviser for a €500m Polish listed Property Fund mandated to acquire commercial assets within Central & Eastern Europe (CEE).

Marcus Roberts, Head of European Investment and Development in Savills Operational Capital Markets team, says: 'With his vast experience, Aurelio will be a superb addition to the team. Our most recent successes include advising on the largest purpose-built student housing deal in Polish history, Student Depot, and Collegiate and Proprium's 700 student bed development JV debut in Milan, both in May.'

Peter Allen, Executive Director and Head of Savills Operational Capital Markets, says: 'We are delighted to welcome Aurelio to our platform, and are excited to leverage his skills and experience in fund and asset management as we continue to build on our market leading position in Europe's operational residential real estate markets.'

Student accommodation, multifamily and senior living have evolved from alternative asset classes into mainstream investments in Europe, which now attract a variety of global institutional investors. We expect to see further deals announced in the sector over the next few months.
