QuadReal Property Group has named Dennis Lopez as CEO of the Vancouver-based real estate investment manager.

Lopez is global chief investment officer and a member of the management board at AXA IM - Real Estates. He joined the firm in 2009 and will leave at the end of May.

According to AXA IM - Real Assets, Lopez was a key player in turning the firm from a Europe-focused real estate manager to a global leader in real estate.

He was previously CEO of SUN Real Estate and prior to this spent 18 years at J.P. Morgan as managing director.

Those who report to Lopez at AXA IM - Real Assets will now report directly to CEO Isabelle Scemama.

Scemama, said: “We are fortunate that, with Dennis Lopez’s support, we have built a strong and highly professional team that will seamlessly pick up the reins from him, ensuring our clients continue to receive strong investment performance and first class service.”

Lopez said: “After eight highly stimulating and successful years at AXA IM – Real Assets and having been offered a unique challenge in a new role where I will be located closer to home in North America, I have made the difficult decision to leave AXA IM - Real Assets.”
