LaSalle Investment Management, the global real estate investment manager, has reorganised its European operations in order to deliver a pan-European offering to institutional investors that are seeking a more integrated approach to the acquisition, management and divestment of assets.
As tipped by PropertyEU, the newly created European Transactions & Asset Management unit, headed by Paris-based Beverley Kilbride, will facilitate cross-border ‘knowledge-sharing’ to manage the lifecycle of assets. It draws on executives from across the firm’s largest offices in Europe including London, Paris and Munich.
Under the reforms, individual team members will focus on specific services and local markets, with four heads of transactions reporting directly into Kilbride: Jérôme Hamelin, Andreas Wesner, Francesco Coviello and Robin James, who will be responsible for all acquisitions and sales in Western Continental Europe, Northern Continental Europe, Southern Continental Europe & CEE, and the UK & Ireland.
Kilbride retains her post as country manager for France.
Jacques-Olivier Gourdon has also been appointed deputy managing director for France and will join the management committee of LaSalle’s French business, while maintaining his role in the sourcing and execution of transactions in France.
The reorganisation of LaSalle in Europe was revealed by Europe CEO, Philip La Pierre, during an interview with PropertyEU. Subscribers can read the interview here.
Kilbride said: ‘I’m excited to be leading this new team across Paris, London and Munich, working with our client-facing teams and local market experts to ensure that we remain at the forefront of real estate investment in Europe.’
