Brunswick Real Estate launches Brunswick Hotels and recruits Peter Wiwen-Nilsson to lead the new venture

Stockholm 5 September 2016:
Peter Wiwen-Nilsson has joined Brunswick Real Estate (“BRE”) to lead the new venture Brunswick Hotels. Peter is the former deputy CEO of Elite Hotels, one of the leading hotel operators in Sweden. Most recently Peter was responsible for Hotel advisory at JLL.

Peter Leimdörfer, Co-Managing Partner of Brunswick Real Estate says:

“Within Brunswick Real Estate we have a constant focus on attracting talent so I am happy to announce that Peter Wiwen-Nilsson has joined the group. By recruiting Peter and forming Brunswick Hotels, the group will consolidate the in-house hotel expertise.”

BRE has a long standing track record of advising, investing and managing hotel investments. One example is the Norse hotel portfolio, developed in Sveafastigheter Fund III and sold to Swiss-based Partners Group earlier this year. Sveafastigheter invested in hotels with high potential and created value through renovating, adding rooms and changing hotel operators for the entire portfolio.  

Peter Leimdörfer, continues:

“By combining the group’s knowledge of the hotel real estate segment with Peter’s extensive experience in managing a successful hotel operation, we can offer exciting and even more differentiating hotel strategies to meet our clients’ investment objectives.”
