Kungsleden strengthens staff in Gothenburg, sees increasing interest in vacant premises
Listed Swedish property company Kungsleden AB (publ) has appointed Tommy Leckborn as its Property Manager focusing on letting and developing its portfolio in Gothenburg. Tommy previously worked on lettings for Ytterbygg AB’s portfolio in Kungälv, Gothenburg and Mölndal, in south-western Sweden.
Initially, Tommy will work on Kungsleden’s portfolio in Kungsbacka, where his broad experience of letting and development work will be well utilised. This includes accelerating the letting of those vacancies that arose after the insolvency of Kungsbacka Graphics.
Kungsleden owns and manages 75 properties in its West Region with a value of some SEK 2.7 bn. Kungsleden’s lettings market in western Sweden is stable, and interest in the company’s vacant premises has been increasing steadily since year-end. Kungsleden’s economic vacancy in western Sweden is mainly concentrated on a small number of development properties.
“We think hiring Tommy strengthens our skills base and creates even better prospects for serving current and new tenants. Now we’re well equipped to address the challenges and opportunities Kungsleden faces in West Region,” commented Nicklas Arfvidsson, Kungsleden’s Regional Manager for Gothenburg.
