Ireland’s Hibernia REIT has appointed Tom Edwards-Moss as its new CEO, following the company’s recent acquisition by Brookfield.
Edwards-Moss, who was CFO since June 2014, succeeds Kevin Nowlan, who will remain an executive director and will be part of the senior management team in the new role of senior advisor.
The appointment is subject to approval by the Central Bank of Ireland.
Tom Edwards-Moss, CEO of Hibernia, said: ‘I’m excited to be taking over as Chief Executive as Hibernia enters this new phase. Under Brookfield’s ownership we plan to maintain our focus on creating new office clusters that deliver a high-quality work environment to our tenants alongside top-tier sustainability credentials, such as the Clanwilliam Quarter and Harcourt Square.’
Brookfield completed the acquisition of Hibernia on 17 June and the company’s shares have since been delisted from Euronext Dublin and the London Stock Exchange.
Hibernia will soon announce a name change to reflect the fact that is no longer structured as Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT).
Hibernia’s portfolio consists of high-quality office assets and prime redevelopment sites in central Dublin, valued at €1.3 bn before the delisting.
The company’s emphasis is on asset clustering to enhance the facilities and amenities for occupiers, in addition to ESG excellence.
