Lindorff Group announces Aktua management change

17th January 2017

Alejandro Zurbano, currently Managing Director of Lindorff Spain, has been appointed leader of a combined management and service organisation of Aktua and Lindorff Spain. Zurbano becomes the country manager of the total business of Lindorff Group in Spain. Zurbano will be in charge of leading the organisational integration process following the acquisition of Aktua by Lindorff in June 2016. Lindorff Spain and Aktua will continue as separate legal entities with their respective Board of Directors, but with a joint management and service organisation.

Enrique Dancausa will become Head of a new unit, Real Estate Services of the total Lindorff group. Dancausa will be responsible for developing Lindorff Group’s international strategy within real estate asset management, an area that has been successfully implemented in Spain in the last few years.

Klaus-Anders Nysteen, CEO Lindorff Group said ” Spain is a growth market and important for Lindorff. By combining forces with Aktua, we not only become stronger in Spain, but we also add a whole new and exciting business segment to the total Lindorff group, Real Estate Servicing,  With Enrique Dancausa in the lead, Real Estate Servicing will become a fundamental part of the global strategy of Lindorff Group. We are very enthusiastic about the launch of this initiative that in Spain has achieved great results. The integration of management and service organisations of Lindorff Spain and Aktua is a step forward in Lindorff Group’s strategy in Spain and we think that Alejandro Zurbano is the right person to lead this process, securing continued first class service to our clients”

After Lindorff’s acquisition of Aktua last year, Banco Santander maintains a 15% shareholding. There are no plans to change this in near future. The management teams of both companies have worked together of the past months to define road map for co-operation and alignment that will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of all processes, define synergies at all levels, and secure the sharing of best practices.
