New director for London Gateway Logistics Park

[ September 15, 2015   //   ]

DP World London Gateway has appointed Oliver Treneman as development director for its new Logistics Park. He replaces Graeme Clarke who is retiring.
Oliver Treneman was previously managing director and country head for The Redwood Group, a specialised logistics real estate investment firm, in China and Japan. He is fluent in Mandarin and has also worked as general manager for Shanghai Business Park Development Co and as a senior director of operations for real estate firm, Prologis.
Graeme Clarke said: “The foundation stones of this huge project are laid and it is time to hand over the reins to someone new. The last eight years have been challenging and at times intense. I take great pride in having been a leading player in the team that has successfully delivered this world class infrastructure asset to the UK for generations to come.”
Oliver Treneman, Development Director, DP World London Gateway Logistics Park, said: “It’s wonderful to be back in the UK after 21 years and I am very excited to be joining the team at DP World London Gateway.
“The commercial rationale for this project is so glaringly obvious to me. When first reading about it in my study in China I was immediately struck by the uniqueness of the opportunity; with its proximity to London and the pace at which both London and its population is growing, combined with the upheaval that is taking place in the retail sector, the value of this proposition is there for all to see.”
