Slättö recruits Ilkka Salminen as Country Head, Finland and Erik Möller as Sector Head, Hotels. The recruitments will support Slättö’s growth strategy in the Nordic region and further strengthen the firm’s well-reputed team.

Slättö has recruited Ilkka Salminen as Country Head, Finland and Erik Möller as Sector Head, Hotels in the investment team.

Ilkka brings substantial real estate investment experience and will play a key role in driving Slättö’s growth in Finland. Ilkka joins Slättö from a role as investment team lead at NREP, where he most recently headed residential transactions in Finland. He also has a background as a consultant at McKinsey & Company.

– Slättö has an impressive track record and team. The recent market turmoil will pose challenges to both construction and real estate sectors going forward. Active and committed firms like Slättö will have great opportunities for value creation. I look forward to contributing to Slättö’s growth in Finland, says Ilkka Salminen.

– I am very pleased to welcome Ilkka to our team. This recruitment is an important step in Slättö’s strategy of expanding our Nordic presence. We have already invested in Finland, both in the logistics and residential segments, and will continue to seek attractive investment opportunities across major Nordic cities, says Erik Dansbo, partner and CIO at Slättö.

Erik Möller has longstanding experience from advisory, operations, property management and value creation within the hotel segment. He joins Slättö from a role as Senior Vice President and Director Property Management Nordics at Pandox, one of Europe’s largest listed hotel owners where he was overall responsible for Pandox’ Nordic hotel portfolio. Prior to that, he worked as Director of Development at Marriott International.

– Slättö combines a very strong track record with a unique entrepreneurial culture. Hotel is a real estate segment where the volatile market conditions over the past years have created an interesting timing for value add investments. I look forward to contributing to Slättö’s growth and further strengthen the firm’s investment team, says Erik Möller.

– Erik is a strong addition to our investment team. Slättö constantly evaluates investment themes across real estate segments. Slättö has invested in the Hotel segment (historically) in the past and will leverage Erik’s experience and network to explore new opportunities going forward, comments Erik Dansbo.
