UBS Global Asset Management has appointed Peter Röhrenbach as its regional head of Benelux, France, Iberia and the Nordics for its global real estate business.
Röhrenbach will leave his role of head of Iberia with immediate effect but will continue to be based in Madrid.
He will oversee and support the acquisitions and dispositions as well as asset management activity in the region in addition to defining the long-term strategic priorities for these markets.
Röhrenbach will furthermore retain his Senior Investment Advisor role for a key pan-European institutional investment mandate.
UBS has announced that he will be replaced by Jesus Silva Gallardo as head of Iberia. Gallardo was hitherto working as head of Asset Management for the Iberian Peninsula.
Röhrenbach has joined UBS in 2003 where he set up the Iberian property business currently managing assets exceeding €700m. Prior to joining UBS, he worked for Lend Lease as head of Real Estate Investments and Eurohypo AG as head of Iberia (Spain and Portugal).
He started his career within the legal department of German pharmaceutical firm Boehringer Ingelheim.
