Cresa, a global tenant-only real estate advisor opening its office in Poland, announced today that Szymon Łukasik, who has 16 years’ experience in the real estate sector, has become head of its newly-created retail department in Poland.

I intend to set up a team of specialists with a strong professional record to support Polish and international tenants in all their projects across the country,” said Szymon Łukasik, Head of Retail Department, Cresa Poland.
Szymon Łukasik has supported brands such as TK Maxx and Foot Locker in entering the Polish market and worked with Brice, Costa Coffee and Marionnaud.
