Nordic real estate firm NREP appoints long-serving Partner Claus Mathisen as new Chief Executive Officer

Today NREP announces that NREP Partner Claus Mathisen replaces Mikkel Bülow-Lehnsby as Chief Executive Officer. Mikkel Bülow-Lehnsby, one of three co-founders of NREP, will continue full time on the NREP Executive Committee and take part in setting the strategic direction, new investment strategies and business plans for the firm.

“We are fortunate to have someone of Claus Mathisen’s caliber and experience for the next step of our journey. NREP has since its establishment in 2005 gradually incubated and built up several customer centric real estate businesses and products and has grown to more than 140 professionals in the core investment management organization. It is now at a size that requires a different mindset and leadership, which Claus Mathisen brings while ensuring continuity,” comments Mikkel Bülow-Lehnsby.

From 2008 to 2017, Claus Mathisen was the CEO of Pelican Self Storage, one of the operating platforms that NREP has built, which he led from an idea to one of the leading self storage companies in Europe. Mr. Mathisen has been a core member of NREP’s strategic management team since 2008 and has a background from Boston Consulting Group and J.P. Morgan.

Speaking on behalf of the NREP Partner group, NREP co-founding Partner Rasmus Nørgaard says, “Mikkel has been instrumental to take NREP to this point but looking forward we see that our larger organization causes a need for a new type of leadership. Claus Mathisen has the right operational skills and leadership abilities to direct NREP to continue its growth and deliver even better results.”

Claus Mathisen further comments,”It is a true honor to have been given the trust to lead NREP on its continued journey. I look forward to developing the team and realize our vision of making better real estate offerings to people of all ages.”
