European real estate and distressed debt specialist Invel Real Estate Partners has appointed George Constantinides as chief financial officer.
According to the firm, Constantinides will be based in Cyprus and be responsible for Invel’s financial and operational functions, as well as managing some relationships with investors and financial institutions.
He will also be supported by Niki Tofaridou who recently joined Invel’s Cyprus office as group accountant.
'George joins us at an exciting and significant period in Invel’s growth,' said Chris Papachristophorou, managing partner and founder of Invel.
'His extensive experience in our target markets, especially Cyprus, and more broadly in both financial services and investment management, means that he is well positioned to work with our existing team and help us achieve our ambition to be the leading real estate investment and asset manager in the Southern and Southern Eastern European region,' Papachristophorou added.
Invel said the appointment would enable its London office to focus on transactions and investor relationships, allowing Arnaud Plat in particular able to reallocate his time on deal origination and execution.
Constantinides has more than 15 years of financial experience, most recently as a director and CFO of the IKOS fund and its European investment advisory business. He started his career at KPMG Audit and Assurance in London.
