Mirastar Expands Southern Europe Team

London/Madrid/Milan, 6 May 2022 – Mirastar, KKR Real Estate’s industrial and logistics platform in Europe, continues to rapidly grow its team in both Spain and Italy with senior hires. This is on the back of securing a strong pipeline of both investment and development deals across both countries.

At the end of 2021, Daniele Calogiuri joined as Country Manager in Italy. Daniele has nearly 20 years of experience in the Real Estate sector, and previously held senior roles at Principal Real Estate, Internos and Axa.

This week, Alfonso Cuesta joined as Country Manager for Iberia. Alfonso has over 20 years of experience in the Real Estate sector, and previously held senior roles at British Land, PWC and Mitiska.

The Southern European development team has been reinforced with the hiring in March of Dario Da Ros in Italy and José María Rueda in Spain as Development Managers. Dario has more than 20 years of experience primarily with Bricoman and Aldi while José María Rueda has 7 years of experience in the residential sector primarily with Gestilar.

Daniele Calogiuri, Country Manager in Italy at Mirastar, said: “Having joined a few months ago our pipeline has now grown rapidly and we are diversifying our investment program to include core plus as well as continuing with the value add development and aggregation strategies.”

Alfonso Cuesta, Country Manager for Iberia at Mirastar, said: “I am very excited to join Mirastar at this stage of their expansion and to continue grow the investment program across Spain. I believe the investment fundamentals are still very compelling across value add and core plus strategies in Spain.”
