DEAS Group strengthens its international perspective with appointment of Rikke Lykke as new Group CEO

Share

DEAS Group, consisting of DEAS A/S and DEAS Asset Management A/S, has over the last years transformed from a Danish property management company to a Nordic full-service partner to property investors. A significant step on this journey was made earlier this year with the acquisition of Aberdeen Standard Investments’ direct Nordic real estate activities – and DEAS Group aims to continue this strategic expansion.

To this end, DEAS Group’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Rikke Lykke as new Group CEO. Rikke Lykke will assist and accelerate the strategic development of the Group at an international level. She will join on 1 August 2021.

“Rikke Lykke brings an international profile that will strengthen our senior leadership capabilities with a strong track record and expertise within professional management and investment in real estate and has excellent knowledge of Nordic and international property markets. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I welcome Rikke to the DEAS Group and look forward to working with her to develop DEAS Group into the Nordic region’s leading ‘Full Service Property House’ and partner of choice to local and international property investors, says Sonny Nielsen, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Rikke Lykke brings experience from PATRIZIA AG, where until recently she was responsible for its European Asset Management activities and country business development across Europe. Furthermore, Rikke Lykke was responsible for the integration of the acquisitions PATRIZIA has carried out in recent years and served on its European Investment Committee and ESG Committee. Lykke has worked in the real estate industry since 2004 at Danish, Nordic and European level.

An exciting company with a highly talented organisation

“DEAS Group is an exciting company with skilled employees and great partners. My focus will be, among other things, to deliver for our internal and external stakeholders, to internationalise the company while adapting to local market conditions, and to digitalise the company and invest in innovative PropTech solutions. Customer service will always be the focal point, and digital solutions will be an integral part of DEAS Group’s proposition to customers in the future”, says Rikke Lykke.

Henrik Dahl Jeppesen has worked for DEAS Group for more than 30 years, including as CEO for the past 14 years. Together with the rest of the DEAS organisation, he has contributed to the strong growth and strategic development of the Group.

“The Board of Directors and I would like to thank Henrik for his many years of commitment to DEAS and significant efforts for the benefit of its customers and employees. We are also pleased that Henrik will continue as senior adviser for strategic projects, where the DEAS organisation can benefit from Henrik’s extensive experience and strong customer relations”, says Chairman of the Board of Directors, Sonny Nielsen.
