As a master’s graduate of the Technical University of Delft, Hugo van Woerden started in the project development business in the late eighties. He was responsible for the development and realisation of more than 30 commercial properties throughout the country. Working in New York with the renowned architects of Pei Cobb Freed, he developed a 115.000 sqm Master Plan for the Beatrix Quarter in The Hague. After switching to the institutional real estate investment business in the early nineties Hugo van Woerden began working for the Dutch Pension Fund PGGM. Responsible for the approximately DM 1 billion portfolio in the Frankfurt region, he developed the 63.000 sqm Kastor and Pollux office towers next to Messeturm in a JV with Despa fund. With the sale of the German portfolio to an investment fund hosted by German SAL Oppenheim Bank, he became one of the co-founders of the institutional fund business of Oppenheim. During the late nineties and the beginning of the 2000’s he built the Dutch portfolio by doing EUR 2 billion in acquisitions and sales. After the sale of the Oppenheim institutional business to IVG AG Hugo van Woerden became managing director of the Dutch Branch with assets under management amounting EUR 1,2 billion.
In 2012, Hugo van Woerden started his own company DutchRE. With his knowledge and experience in asset management and real-estate transitions, Hugo van Woerden made DutchRE an established name in the Dutch real-estate industry.
Besides his work as Managing Partner, Hugo van Woerden loves spending time with his family and beloved dog Gabber in Noordwijk. In his spare time, he enjoys boating, golf and classic car motoring, also on the track.
