Scannell Properties appoints Costantino Pagnotta as Development Manager, Italy

Real estate development and investment company Scannell Properties is set to intensify its growth plans in Italy with the appointment of Costantino Pagnotta.  Pagnotta joins the company this week and will take on the position of Development Manager, Italy.

In his new role, Pagnotta will join the existing development team and have specific responsibility for developing large-scale, build-to-suit and speculative logistics projects across Italy. He will manage all phases of the process from inception to completion.

Pagnotta brings over 20 years’ experience in real estate development, most recently as Head of Logistics and Project Director at Artelia leading the Project Management Team dedicated to delivering logistics projects in Italy.   During his 14 years with Artelia, he led the Construction ManagementTeam..

Commenting on Pagnotta’s appointment, Nick Deeks, Managing Director, Scannell International, said:

“Italy is a key market for Scannell due to the extensive modernisation of its logistics infrastructure and supply chain, driven mostly by digitalisation and the growth of e-commerce.

“Costantino’s vast experience of delivering build-to-suit and speculative logistics and industrial developments across Italy will enable us to enhance the rate at which we can acquire sites and deliver sustainable buildings for our clients.”

Pagnotta added:

“I am delighted to be joining the team at Scannell, which has the capability and ambition to deliver projects at pace at a time when the sector is experiencing such significant transformation.

“Responding to our clients’ need to optimise delivery times particularly in the ‘last mile’ and within urban settings, requires an in-depth knowledge of the territory.  A key part of my new role will be careful identification and assessment of suitable redevelopment sites which can be brought back to life through modern logistics.”
