Apsys strengthens its management team with the creation of two new key roles
Apsys strengthens its management team with the creation of two new key roles: Deputy CEO responsible for Asset Management in France, entrusted to Manuel Tessier (previously Director of Asset Management), and Group Concept, Design and Innovation Director, entrusted to Guillaume Sadoux, who has just joined Apsys.
These two new roles form part of Apsys’ new property development model and aim to further improve the performance of its assets and the strength of the company’s projects, a company already recognised for its boldness and creativity.
« The creation of these positions, entrusted to talented professionals, is fully in line with Apsys’ strategy: to create and manage iconic places that breathe life into cities and communities! » says Fabrice Bansay, CEO of the Apsys Group.
Manuel Tessier will oversee Asset Management, Rental Management and Property Management.
