Property investment manager Nuveen Real Estate has appointed Nick Evans as its permanent head of Asia Pacific, after the Sydney-based executive had led the firm’s APAC platform on an interim basis for four months, according to a company spokesperson.
Evans had stepped up to the role temporarily following the departure in July of Nuveen Real Estate’s managing director for Asia Pacific, Chris Reilly.
“The Asia Pacific region remains a core focus for Nuveen Real Estate’s global growth aspirations. With commercial real estate debt, retail, office and housing investments across Asia Pacific, we have a growing portfolio, representing over $3 billion, across the region.”
— Nuveen spokesperson
In his now-permanent role, Evans heads Nuveen’s Asia Pacific real estate leadership team, which comprises head of product and solutions for Asia Pacific, Carsten Kebbedies; fund Manager for the Asia Pacific Cities Fund, Louise Kavanagh; director of development for Asia Pacific, Joe Magrath; and head of finance for Asia Pacific, Kirsten Farrelly.
Evans will remain based in Sydney, and will visit regional offices on a regular basis.
The appointment comes just under a year after TH Real Estate was rebranded as Nuveen Real Estate to reflect the firm’s status as the property investment arm of TIAA-controlled investment management giant Nuveen. The rebranding seems to have consolidated an already existing Nuveen real estate division, which Louise Kavanagh had been appointed to head up at the end of 2017.
