A Property Management company

Established in 2000 by Dirk Rens (° 1957), GPM was a Property Management company right from its inception, at that time it was the essential intermediary for Scandinavian property owners (among others the Bastion Tower in Brussels) between on the one hand the owners and on the other hand the many tenants in their property portfolios. At the time, GPM already managed various office buildings and semi-industrial premises in Brussels and Antwerp with a small team.

‘One-Stop-Shop’

After a while, GPM increasingly expanded into a so-called 'one stop shop' property company, specialised in the administrative accounting management for a building as well as the technical monitoring of a building's systems. Moreover, more and more tenants and landlords engage GPM to support them with experienced project coordination for their building plans. The solid market knowledge of Dirk Rens and his wide experience as a Property Manager and Project Manager has over all those years given rise to a trusted collaboration with many property investors in the field of purchasing and sales advice with their property transactions.

Jan Vrancken

With the arrival of Jan Vrancken (°1965) in September 2016, GPM has acquired a new partner who has earned a reputation in the various sectors of commercial property in Belgium and Luxembourg (offices, retail property and logistics buildings). He has been managing director of ING Real Estate Investment Management (now CBRE Global Investors), Oppenheim Immobilien GmbH and ConnectImmo, the property department of Proximus. The extensive real estate expertise and the wide network of the two partners provide GPM with the necessary legitimacy and real estate knowledge needed to serve the interests of their many loyal clients in an optimal way.

Family Vande Moortel

Since November 2019 the Vande Moortel family from Oudenaarde has held a majority stake in GPM. Mr Jan Vrancken is and remains a minority shareholder. He also takes care of the operational management of GPM. With its subsidiaries Syncura (building management) and Rencura (stewardship), the Vande Moortel family is already well established on the Belgian residential building management scene as a building manager and steward. With this holding in GPM and thanks to the know-how in the field of professional advice and the management of corporate real estate, a ready-made answer is now offered to the growing demand for the management of multifunctional sites (mixed sites where housing units, offices and shops are developed together). Moreover, the current branch network of 17 offices (Syncura and Rencura sites) in Belgium provides cover across the country, enabling GPM to substantially extend its geographic scope of action. After all, geographic spread and specialised services are becoming increasingly important, including in the field of building management.
