Stephan Fickl joins management team!


ADELSHEIM. HASLINGER RETAIL REAL ESTATE CONSULTING is setting the course for the future with great foresight. In doing so, it has achieved a special feat. Stephan Fickl, an outstanding industry specialist with a wealth of experience, has been recruited to strengthen the strategic management team. Alongside owner Michael Haslinger, he will be jointly responsible for the entire outlet portfolio. The native South African with an Austrian passport will start in June 2021 and will then also immediately take over responsibility for the fashion outlet in Zevenaar, the Netherlands, currently the largest outlet under construction in Europe.

Stephan Fickl has more than 20 years of expertise in the retail industry, where he has been responsible for both the leasing and development of shopping centres and outlet centres on three continents. Most recently, the 47-year-old worked as "Group Leasing Director" at Spanish outlet operator NEINVER - where he was responsible for the entire leasing operation in Europe. Prior to this appointment, the new business partner of HASLINGER RETAIL REAL ESTATE CONSULTING held management positions at the McArthurGlen Group, where he was "Regional Leasing Director" for Northern Europe for seven years. Before that, Fickl spent nine years with the ECE Group - first as "Head of Leasing" for the Middle East region, and later as "Head of Leasing" for Bulgaria and Croatia. The enthusiastic rugby fan started his career in the retail sector at Woolworths in South Africa in 1999, after which he moved to the commercial real estate branch at Ségécé-Klepierre in France. "I am very happy that we were able to win Stephan Fickl for us. I have known him for a long time. Therefore, I know exactly that his extensive experience and expertise in the outlet centre sector are an ideal addition to our company. Furthermore, his global network of leasing partners, project developers and investors will give us a real boost," explains Michael Haslinger and adds: "With this fortunate acquisition, we are consistently expanding our focus on international outlet development. As a point of reference, 15 projects in five countries across Europe are currently being managed and co-developed by HASLINGER RETAIL REAL ESTATE CONSULTING, which was founded by Michael Haslinger in 2013.

Stephan Fickl has chosen HASLINGER RETAILS REAL ESTATE CONSULTING as the next stop on his career path, "because I still see some growth opportunities for the company in the future. The aim is to build on what already exists and to consolidate and at the same time further develop the existing potential by joining forces," says Fickl, who lives in Wegberg in North Rhine-Westphalia, and adds: "I am looking forward to my new task. This is an interesting challenge for me. I can draw on a capable team which it is a pleasure to work with." With this personnel decision, an important cornerstone has been laid for the continued positive development of the Adelsheim-based consulting firm. The long-standing know-how of the two business partners paired with the committed team of employees are the guarantee that the success story will continue. Because the future doesn't just happen - it is created.
