LaSalle creates new European Transactions and Asset Management team
LONDON (July 12, 2021) — LaSalle 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.
The newly created European Transactions & Asset Management unit, headed by Paris-based Beverley Kilbride, will facilitate cross-border knowledge-sharing within a unified team responsible for managing the full 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 Beverley Kilbride: Jérôme Hamelin, Andreas Wesner, Francesco Coviello and Robin James, who will respectively be responsible for all acquisitions and sales in Western Continental Europe, Northern Continental Europe, Southern Continental Europe & CEE, and the UK & Ireland.
LaSalle’s country teams will retain their executive functions, with Beverley remaining in post as Country Manager for France, to provide on-the-ground presence, local leadership and expertise and a conduit between LaSalle’s business leads and country teams. 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.
"This reorganisation of our European business illustrates the versatility and flexibility we can bring to bear to ensure that we continue to deliver best-in-class services for our clients. 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," said Beverley Kilbride, Head of Transactions and Asset Management in Europe for LaSalle.
