LaSalle Investment Management has appointed Beverley Kilbride as Chief Operating Officer (COO) for Europe.
Beverley Kilbride will lead operations across LaSalle’s unified European team with her remit comprising sustainability, asset management, operations, digital projects and capital markets.
She will focus on integrating and implementing strategic operational efficiencies across all European investments, assets and funds, reflecting LaSalle’s integrated approach globally.
Beverley will also become the Chair of LaSalle’s European Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (‘DE&I’) Operating Committee, succeeding Brian Klinksiek, LaSalle’s Global Head of Research & Strategy.
Having joined LaSalle in 2006 from JLL, Beverley has worked across asset management, acquisitions and fund management. Based in the firm’s Paris office, Beverley successfully spearheaded LaSalle’s return to the Dutch market in 2013 and gained hands-on asset management and investment experience overseeing a selection of strategic value-add assets across Europe.
After assuming the role of Head of Transactions & Asset Management for Europe in July 2021, Beverley oversaw and managed the acquisitions and asset management teams. In this time, Beverley established LaSalle’s European Asset Management Board and specialist European Development & Repurposing team, with the in-house capability of delivering larger, more complex and higher-return developments.
In her new role, Beverly remains head of LaSalle’s French regulated business.
Philip La Pierre, Head of Europe for LaSalle, said: “Beverley’s new appointment reflects LaSalle’s continued focus on ensuring the alignment and efficiency of the firm’s operations across Europe and globally. Her newly created role will help further drive LaSalle’s investment performance as we continue to embed sustainability considerations across our portfolio. Having been with LaSalle for over 15 years, Beverley has built a highly successful track record and is instrumental to delivering on our ambitions in Europe on behalf of our clients.”
Beverley Kilbride, Chief Operating Officer, Europe, for LaSalle, commented: “This role offers an exciting opportunity to work closely with our operational, sustainability and investment teams to help drive further transformation across LaSalle’s integrated European and global business. I am delighted to take on this new role at a pivotal time and help ensure that LaSalle maintains its position as one of the world’s leading real estate investment managers.”
