Lendlease hires Fabien Toscano to lead European investment business

International real estate and investment group Lendlease has appointed Fabien Toscano as its new managing director, investment management in Europe.

Toscano brings nearly 20 years of experience in investment to the role.

Having studied at Johns Hopkins Business School in Baltimore, USA, Toscano went on to work in a variety of positions including a long tenure at Qatari Diar. While there he held a variety of roles in the US, the UK and in Qatar; most recently as chief executive for the Americas.

Lendlease said it works to an integrated business model in which two or more of its operating segments of investments, development and construction look to combine and engage on the same project to create new mixed-use districts, communities and provide important social and civic infrastructure.

Fabien Toscano will oversee Lendlease’s European investment management platform, which incorporates the company’s own development projects and wider market opportunities.

Neil Martin, Lendlease Europe Chief Executive, said: “Fabien brings a wealth of knowledge to the role and has a track record of delivering outstanding results. Our Group has targeted having funds under management of AUD$70 billion by FY26 and hiring Fabien is very much part of that plan. I look forward to him becoming an integral part of our business.”  

In Europe the team’s principal focus is on providing investment, asset and property management across offices, residential Build to Rent, life sciences and mixed-use schemes, said Lendlease.

Fabien Toscano, Managing Director, Investment Management, Lendlease Europe, said: “The opportunity to work for a leading international real estate and investment group, with a comprehensive business platform is a rare opportunity. I’m excited to be joining the Lendlease team and contributing to their pursuit of prosperous growth and excellence.”
