The developer has recruited Serafín Giménez Castillo as Senior Project Manager and Inés Sánchez Paredes as Junior Project Manager, who will be in charge of the technical side of project management.

Finally, Panattoni announces the appointment of Diana Fonseca Barrero as Senior Marketing & Communications Manager. Her objective will be to serve as a link between all business areas to enhance their value through communications, as well as to align marketing activities with the broader vision and objectives of the company and its stakeholders.
Diana Fonseca holds an Executive Master's Degree in Corporate Reputation from the University of Navarra and a Postgraduate Degree in Logistics Management from the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.
