NWP Property Names Kevin Kow as CEO and President Director
Jakarta, September 2022 – NWP Property (“NWP” or “the Company”), Indonesia’s largest and fastest-growing omni-channel commerce infrastructure platform backed by Warburg Pincus, announced today that the Company has appointed Kevin Kow, previously NWP’s Chief Investment Officer, as the Company’s new CEO and President Director, effective immediately. Kow will succeed Timothy Daly, the previous CEO and President Director, who will become a Commissioner of the Board of NWP.
Kow brings a wealth of experience in the real estate and investment industry, previously representing Morgan Stanley and then CLSA as the Head of the Singapore & Southeast Asia in both firms. In the recent three years, he was the Chief Investment Officer at NWP, where he spearheaded the acquisition of 8 assets, comprising 7 shopping malls with a total net lettable area of over 140,000 square meters and a hotel.

Warburg Pincus-backed NWP Property and CRE Asia Establish a Joint Venture Focusing on Modern Logistics Real Estate Opportunities
Jakarta, March 22, 2022 — Today, PT Nirvana Wastu Pratama (“NWP Property”), Indonesia’s largest and fastest-growing New Economy enabled consumer infrastructure platform co-founded by Warburg-Pincus and led by its CEO Timothy Daly, CRE Asia Pte. Ltd. (“CRE Asia”), a consolidated subsidiary of CRE, Inc., led by its president Tadahide Kameyama, and Bonny Setiawan (“Mr. Setiawan”), an Indonesian entrepreneur and experienced logistics professional, announced to establish a joint venture (the “Venture”) to capture the booming opportunities in modern, big-box logistics real estate in Indonesia. Mr. Setiawan has been appointed as the CEO of the Venture.
With a common conviction that modern logistics real estate is meaningfully undersupplied in Indonesia, this strategic partnership is formed to establish a best-in-class, big-box logistics platform to meet the significant growth driven by the expansion of omni-retail platforms, rising needs from third-party logistics companies (3PLs) and fast-moving consumer goods company (FMCG) tenants.
NWP Property’s robust capabilities in scaling its “online to offline” (or “O2O”) consumer infrastructure platform that enables both online commerce via its last-mile logistics facilities as well as offline purchases via the largest independent network of modern community-based shopping malls, will be complemented by CRE’s institutional experience in logistics and regional networks as well as Mr. Setiawan’s expertise in building modern logistics platforms. The Venture has secured its first modern, pre-leased built-to-suit warehouse in Jakarta which is expected to commence construction in the second-half of the year.
Mr. Timothy Daly, NWP Property’s CEO and President Director, said, “NWP welcomes this exciting platform to our consumer infrastructure ecosystem. We are thrilled to partner with CRE and Mr. Setiawan. The supply of Indonesian warehouse space is meaningfully behind its industrial peers, such as China and Japan, who have 10-40 times the warehouse space per capita, respectively, compared to Indonesia. The durable megatrends driving the demand for holistic omni-commerce infrastructure will accelerate into the next decade, and we see unparalleled synergies in this Venture alongside our existing last-mile fulfillment center platform and our growing community retail platform.”
Mr. Tadahide Kameyama, CRE’s President, said, “We are delighted to establish strategic partnership with Warburg Pincus, NWP Property, and Mr. Setiawan. Warburg Pincus is one of the most established and successful institutional investors in the world and has proven track record of supporting successful real estate businesses in Southeast Asia. We look forward to working together with NWP Property and Warburg Pincus to expand our operations in Indonesia.”
Mr. Bonny Setiawan, the Venture’s CEO, said, “The investment thesis into the Indonesian logistics real estate market is beyond doubt. There is a significant opportunity to develop high-quality logistics assets to serve the growing demand companies including e-commerce and FMCG operators. I am excited to leverage NWP’s existing O2O ecosystem and experienced management team to develop the largest network of modern distribution centers in Indonesia.”
