At its meeting in Göteborg, the EPF Managing Committee elected Liviu Tudor, CEO of Genesis Property and President of the Romanian Association of Building Owners, as President of EPF. Tudor, who created organised Romanian real estate and brought it into EPF, takes over at a time of EU consolidation and expansion in South East Europe. Liviu Tudor succeeds John Frederiksen, recent past Chairman of the Danish Property Federation, to the EPF presidency.

Commenting on his election, Tudor said:

"I have two connected priorities: Romania is the only country in South East Europe with organised real estate. I want to help our neighbours take the same path so that their governments understand the role of property investors in creating an urban environment that attracts cutting edge European investment. And I shall support EPF in its work of securing EU regulation that fosters a dynamic property sector geared to the challenges of a mutating economy, climate warming and an aging population."

John R. Frederiksen, outgoing President, said:

"Liviu Tudor is well qualified to lead EPF's effort to help consolidate and future-proof the EU Internal Market for Real Estate. Beyond his personal qualities and superb track record, Liviu Tudor's election is a recognition of the increasing European and international attractiveness of Romanian property markets."
