Paweł Sztejter has been appointed Vice President of JLL Poland’s Management Board. He takes over from Kazimierz Kirejczyk who will continue his strategic work with JLL’s residential team.

JLL's Residential Department, which Paweł has headed since 2018, includes the Residential Market Research, Development Advisory and Transaction Advisory teams. Previously, he and Kazimierz Kirejczyk had established and developed over a 25-year period REAS, a consultancy company that provided comprehensive residential advisory services. Following the JLL’s acquisition of REAS in December 2018, his remit included strengthening services in the area of transaction consultancy in the residential market, a sector in which JLL leads the way in Poland.

The change in the company's Management Board is a natural continuation of the process of developing residential consultancy services both in Poland and the CEE region. The importance of the living sector is growing worldwide, and the pandemic has only strengthened investor interest in this asset class. To illustrate this, the EMEA region has so far this year seen living transactions share in total real estate investment volumes exceeding 35%.

Kazimierz Kirejczyk, as one of the most recognised residential market experts in Poland, will continue to support the work of the team in the field of strategic analyses, long-term forecasts and developing new residential business segments, including senior housing. Kazimierz will also deepen his involvement with the JLL Strategic Advisory Panel, a think-tank operating alongside the Management Board, which he has headed since the beginning of this year.

"Our goal is to integrate JLL's comprehensive cross-sector knowledge and to provide a broader analysis of the direction of Poland’s real estate market. At a time when both the sector and its macroeconomic environment are undergoing such dynamic changes, we will focus even more on strengthening our client relations and leveraging the synergies of the wide range of competencies and expertise provided by JLL both in Poland and around the world,” comments Mateusz Bonca, Managing Director, JLL Poland.
