LaSalle revamps European Research & Strategy leadership team

LONDON (August 24, 2022) — LaSalle Investment Management (“LaSalle”) has announced a series of additions and enhancements to its European Research & Strategy leadership team, reflecting a deepened focus on its key investor products and an emphasis on driving competitive investment performance.

Dan Mahoney succeeds LaSalle’s newly appointed Global Head of Research & Strategy, Brian Klinksiek, as Head of European Research & Strategy, effective 1 January 2023. He brings over 14 years’ experience as a strategist in the firm’s North America Research & Strategy team, where he helped drive investment performance through a range of successful initiatives, including a focus on LaSalle’s US residential strategies. During that time, he acted as the Research & Strategy team’s chief liaison for several clients and funds. In his new role, Dan will relocate to London and focus on further embedding and enhancing the use of proprietary, risk-adjusted frameworks and analytics to drive investment conviction across debt and equity strategies in Europe. He will report to both Brian Klinksiek and Philip La Pierre, Head of Europe.  

As part of this restructuring, Petra Blazkova has been appointed to the newly created role of Head of Research & Strategy, Core & Core-Plus Capital, Europe. Previously Managing Director within LaSalle’s European Research & Strategy team, Petra was responsible for overseeing Continental European market analysis from the London office. In her new capacity, she will relocate to Munich and work closely with David Ironside, fund manager of Encore+, and Uwe Rempis, fund manager of LaSalle E-REGI, as well as the firm’s separate accounts, supporting the funds’ ongoing strategies and development.

Completing these changes, Dominic Silman has been appointed as Head of Research & Strategy, Debt & Value-Add Capital, Europe. Previously Senior Strategist within LaSalle’s European Research & Strategy team, Dominic will continue to be based in the London office and will work directly with Michael Zerda, Head of Debt & Value-Add Strategies, on the firm’s European debt strategies and recently reconstituted value-add platform. In their new roles, Petra and Dominic will report into Dan Mahoney.

Brian Klinksiek, incoming Global Head of Research & Strategy at LaSalle Investment Management, said: “The breadth and depth of our European Research & Strategy team enables LaSalle to drive forward its best-in-class client offering across Europe. These appointments will help maintain that momentum, underpinning our growing and integrated product mix, and ensuring the ongoing success of LaSalle’s commingled funds and separate accounts. I look forward to continuing to work with Dan, Petra and Dom as the European Research & Strategy team goes from strength to strength”.

Philip La Pierre, Head of Europe at LaSalle Investment Management, added: “Dan, Petra and Dom’s collective experience will be key to our in-house market-leading intelligence and the delivery of competitive investment performance across the full spectrum of our products. They will play a vital role in informing investment decisions and portfolio construction, particularly as we continue to diversify our asset allocation, grow our value-add strategies and build upon our well-established debt series.”
