Global real estate leader Dennis Lopez has been named chief executive officer of QuadReal Property Group, effective June 5, 2017.
He comes to QuadReal with deep relationships with real estate leaders around the world and a track record of success in CEO, CIO and MD roles at large real estate asset management and investment firms.
“From the outset, we believed that a successful search for a globally recognized real estate leader would complement our strong Canadian and growing international capabilities,” said Paul Cantor, board chair, QuadReal. “Mr. Lopez has earned a reputation as an innovative, dynamic real estate executive who is focused on creating and delivering value.”
He will work with the company’s board of directors and executive management to set and execute global and domestic real estate investment, development and management strategy across our core business lines – industrial, office, residential and retail. Implementation will include the enhancement of these lines and the underlying business services to support them, such as human resources and technology.
“QuadReal’s mandate to become a leading institutional real estate investment firm, with properties in Canada and around the world, captures my imagination and inspires me to lead this team,” said Lopez. “I am excited by QuadReal’s potential, and look forward to working with my new colleagues to deliver peerless service to our tenants and residents, desirable investment returns, and a rewarding work experience for every team member.”
