Redevco, one of Europe’s largest privately-owned real estate investment managers, has appointed Jonathan Cole in the role of transaction manager in the UK reporting to Tom Hoye. Cole will be part of Redevco’s Global Transaction Management team, headed by Adam Starr.
Starr commented: “Transactions play a pivotal role in executing our growth strategy through delivering opportunities for multiple mandates across our four key investment themes of repurposing to mixed use, residential, retail warehouse parks and leisure & hospitality. The appointment of Jonathan, who is an experienced investment specialist with a proven track record of delivering deals in our target sectors, is one of more to come to ensure that we have the right capabilities and capacity to succeed.”
Jonathan Cole added: “It is great to join Redevco in an incredibly exciting phase of its evolution and become part of the transaction team that is at the forefront of this. My passion for opportunities which create positive impact, such as repurposing urban sites to add new homes, will help deliver the company’s growth and diversification targets. Ultimately they can also help cities become more sustainable and liveable.”
He will focus on the UK where Redevco particularly seeks to secure more large-scale repurposing opportunities with potential for significant additional residential use. In addition, Cole will work on all existing mandates, support on divestments, source for new strategies and look for deal led JV opportunities for existing and new partners.
He joins from Ellandi where he was investment director.
