“I joined Engel & Völkers Commercial in Milan as a consultant in the retail team in October 2017,” reports Roberto Nava. “And I’ve been working in the retail segment of the real estate industry for as long as I can remember. At the start of my career, my main focus was on letting shopping centres with Cushman & Wakefield; after that I changed to the Sales division of Savills and BNP Paribas,” says the property expert.
“Of course, at Engel & Völkers Commercial in Milan, we also took the opportunity to be represented at one of the retail world’s most important trade fairs, namely the Mapic in Cannes. Many Italian enterprises are represented at this international trade fair,” reports Nava. The property expert perceives the current change unfolding in the retail sector as follows: “The current transformation is due in particular to the growing volume of online offerings available. While demand for retail floor space has declined, the level of demand for logistics floor space is rising,” adds the property expert.
