LaSalle Investment Management, the global real estate investment manager, has promoted Katie Hynard and Marc Fauchille to Head of UK Commercial Asset Management and Head of Development & Repurposing, Europe, respectively.
In their new roles, Katie will also become the Chair of LaSalle’s newly created European Asset Management Board, and Marc will become one of the Board’s members and lead the specialist European Development and Repurposing platform, a newly created pillar of LaSalle’s European asset management function focused on larger, more complex and higher-return developments.
The new European Asset Management Board will fully integrate LaSalle’s geographical, sector and development asset management expertise across the wide range of European markets and sectors in which it invests – optimising asset performance and managing its portfolio according to the highest Environmental, Social and Governance standards.
The enhanced asset management cross-border capabilities provided by the Board will complement LaSalle’s leading pan-European, full-service client offer and strategic focus on investing in best-in-class assets in growing markets.
Katie has been at LaSalle for 10 years, previously as an Asset Manager and Senior Operations Manager in Europe. She will now be responsible for the management of LaSalle’s commercial sector assets across the UK and, as Chair of the European Asset Management Board, for driving business-wide growth initiatives and delivering efficiencies across the pan-regional asset management strategy.
Since 2019, Marc has served as Development & Asset Management Director at LaSalle for France & Luxembourg. Before joining LaSalle, Marc was a Project & Development Services Associate Director at JLL for 10 years. Marc will now be responsible for supervising development activities across Europe.
Katie and Marc will be joined on the Board by Natalia Kolotneva, Head of Living & Hospitality Asset Management, Europe; Hagen Knaupp, Head of Asset Management, Continental Europe (excl France); and Loïc Sanières, Head of Asset Management, France.
Both Katie and Marc, and their fellow Board members, will report into Beverley Kilbride, Head of Transactions & Asset Management, Europe, at LaSalle.
Katie Hynard, Head of UK Commercial Asset Management at LaSalle, said: “The creation of the European Asset Management Board is a game-changer in terms of offering our clients a fully integrated asset management function across all our markets and sectors in the region. I am therefore very proud to have been appointed Chair, as well as taking on the role of Head of UK Commercial Asset Management. I am really looking forward to working with my colleagues in the UK and on the continent to build upon our proven success and expertise as we strategically leverage our asset management platform to support our growth aspirations across Europe.”
Marc Fauchille, Head of Development & Repurposing, Europe at LaSalle, added: “It is a privilege to lead the European Development and Repurposing platform at LaSalle. I am excited to continue working with colleagues on challenging and high-quality development and repurposing projects that drive stellar returns for our clients.”
Beverley Kilbride, Head of Transactions & Asset Management, Europe at LaSalle, commented: “These promotions and the establishment of the European Asset Management Board position us to maintain and extend our track record of acquiring, developing and managing best-in-class assets in premier locations across Europe. Katie and Marc, with their fellow Board members, will further strengthen our asset management capabilities across all sectors and I look forward to working with them to deliver value for our investors.”
