NETHERLANDS - Former PGGM staffer Hans Spikker is to join ABP Investments as a real estate manager.
Spikker is expected to join the fund on 1 January and will be based at the ABP Schiphol Airport office.
Before PGGM, Spikker held international real estate positions at Shell Pension Fund Management, SPP Investment Management and MAB.
Last month, ABP announced it would be splitting the fund into two separate components to comply with the recently passed Pensions Act 2007.
The change would see the fund create a separate administration agency comprising of a holding company, supervisory board and executive board to oversee administration, asset management services and communication.
The new organisational structure is due to come into effect on 1 March 2008, with the fund's board continuing under the name ABP.
