About Michiel


Michiel Assink started his career in 2004 at CBRE's Global Corporate Services (GSC) department, where he guided a number of leasing/letting  and consolidation transactions in the Netherlands on behalf of national and international companies like Citibank, Network Appliance, Daimler Chrysler, Esso, Malaysia Airlines and other international CBRE clients. In those years he acquired a very good insight into the property user market. In mid-2007 he transferred to the Capital Markets department, where he guided national and international developers, financiers and investors in the acquisition and disposal of individual buildings or portfolios in the Netherlands. Michiel has been involved in a broad range of office, hotel, retail and logistic investments transactions throughout the Netherlands, and often guides elaborate, complex sales processes. In 2012 he began to focus in more detail on the industrial and logistics market, and specifically on the investment market. He is currently a Senior Director, and responsible for the Industrial & Logistics team in the Netherlands, which focuses on users, investors and developers of industrial and logistics property.
