Prior to joining Ellandi, Herman worked as Head of Research at MARK Capital Management, known as Meyer Bergman until November 2020. He is a member of several UK and international property research communities including Society Property Researchers, ULI Urban Land Institute and RICS Royal Institute Chartered Surveyors.
After graduating from State University in Groningen with a Master’s in Human Geography with Economic Geography, Herman secured a PhD in Human Geography at Utrecht University in 1999. He is a regular guest lecturer at universities.
Herman commented, “I’m excited to join the Ellandi team where creating unique, community focused places sit at the heart of their vision, and where data and analytics underpins their strategy.”
Ellandi uses data to create unique insight into towns, occupiers, and visitors and anticipates trends and future needs. It informs their understanding of how a place can become adaptable and sustainable, providing the best solutions for investors, lenders, local authorities, and communities.
Mark Robinson, Ellandi co-founder, added: “Following Izzy Hease’s departure to set up our new Visitor Insights joint venture, we are delighted to have secured someone of the calibre of Herman. His passion for real estate is clear and he brings a wealth of academic and pan-European experience to Ellandi.”
