About Ole Hammershøj

Following his education as a banker, Ole has worked for more than 30 years in the commercial real estate industry.

He has had leading positions in some of the largest companies within the Danish real estate market including Swedish developer and construction company Skanska, Danish pension fund ATP Ejendomme and most recent 17 years as Head of Retail Denmark at global real estate advisor CBRE.

Living five years in Germany and having served international clients for decades, Ole has a natural cultural awareness and is fluent in English and German.

There is no one-size-fits-all. Retailers, landlords and locations are all different. Ole is always curious to understand the tenants’ requirements in detail and match these with locations and landlords. Likewise, landlords can benefit from his experience in unlocking the potential of a location, a building, and the configuration of a lease.

He is driven by seeking optimal solutions using his diplomatic skills and profound market insight, combining all available information into a meaningful outcome for the stakeholders involved.

“We are open” – the little sign hanging on the entrance door of a shop inviting you in. This was the first picture that came to me when I considered founding my own commercial real estate advisory & agency with a strong focus on assisting retailers and landlords in the formation of exciting store formats.

“Open” also became a key word, embracing the moment I was in. Open to new challenges and adventures. Open in the meaning of unlocking potential. Open to share, collaborate and discuss. Open in the sense of being transparent. Open – being accessible. Openminded. Open as the beginning or start of something new. Open – again! - after periods of lockdowns due to the global COVID-19 pandemic filled with “Sorry - We are closed” signs.

Copenhagen is where I live. Retail is my passion – and COPENHAGEN RETAIL has become my new daily life…

…and I feel lucky, that Christina, a former dear colleague of mine, has decided to join me in my ambition to make Copenhagen the world’s most liveable city again.

We cannot wait to open the next store.

Contact us – we are OPEN.
