Austrian listed property firm CA Immo has announced the appointment of Silvia Schmitten-Walgenbach as new chief executive officer (CEO) following the departure of current CEO Andreas Quint, who will retire when his management board mandate expires on 31 December 2021.

Schmitten-Walgenbach will take up the CEO role at the beginning of 2022 for a period of three years until December 31, 2024.
