Haya Real Estate (“Haya”) – the leading Spanish debt and real estate asset management company – has appointed Daniel López Sanz as head of its new Recoveries and Debt Services Department.

Daniel López will lead this newly created department, overseeing a specialist team of over 150 people from a variety of career backgrounds with extensive experience in managing and recovering unpaid debts both by amicable means and through the courts.

Specifically, the objective of the Recoveries and Debt Services Department is to provide the different players within the financial sector with a specialist integrated debt management service that reflects the new accounting and legal regulatory framework in which they operate and present-day market conditions. The service covers all stages of management and recovery, from classifying and managing performing loans through to anticipating recurring or technical irregularities and achieving a coordinated recovery (whether by amicable means or through the courts) in the event of default, together with collateral management. With its new offering, Haya continues to provide its clients with tailored solutions to give them a competitive edge and help mitigate potential losses.

Daniel López is a graduate in Economics and Law from Carlos III University in Madrid and has extensive experience in debt management and recovery. He began his career with the Banco Español de Crédito, where he set up the first department to offer integrated debt recovery services (amicable settlements, court proceedings and real estate) for portfolios held by international financial institutions. He then spent over 10 years with Aktua Soluciones Financieras (now part of Intrum Group), where he was Regional Client and Sales Director for Spain, Portugal and Latin America and a member of the Spanish and Regional Management Boards.
