Blackbrook was established on the principle that commercial real estate occupiers are better served investing their capital in their core business activities and growth initiatives, rather than tying up capital in real estate assets.
We look for opportunities where we can add significant value for tenants who are looking to grow their businesses, while also creating long-term value through transitioning to a greener and more environmentally sustainable future. Blackbrook has a long track record of investing in mission critical supply-chain assets, and other real estate assets where we see long-term opportunity.
Our team has experience extending to over €20 billion of real estate investments in more than 20 countries across Europe and North America.
Arvi A. I. Luoma
Co-Founder & CEO
Arvi has more than 15 years of real estate investment experience extending to over €4 billion of Sale-Leaseback, Build to Suit, Net Lease and Value-Add real estate acquisitions in more than 20 countries and across all major asset classes including industrial & logistics, office, retail, healthcare and hospitality. Prior to founding Blackbrook, Arvi was Head of European Investments at W. P. Carey, a public US REIT.
Gordon F. DuGan
Co-Founder & Chairman
Prior to founding Blackbrook, Gordon was CEO of Gramercy Property Trust (GPT), a fund specialising in industrial properties which was acquired by Blackstone for $7.6 billion. As part of GPT, Gordon founded Gramercy Europe, which acquired more than €1 billion of industrial assets. Before that, Gordon was CEO of W. P. Carey where he oversaw its growth to more than $10 billion AuM and established the European business.
Alongside every investment made by Blackbrook, we support the local community through charitable contributions in a manner that both we and our occupiers believe will have the most impact.
Blackbrook’s sustainability program primarily supports community real estate ESG improvement, social and charitable initiatives in the regions where we invest, as well as in education and healthcare, and making donations towards crisis management funds. Blackbrook also supports employee’s own charitable initiatives through direct and matching donations.
