INREV has announced the appointment of Lonneke Löwik as the association’s new CEO, effective from December 2017.
The appointment marks a return to INREV for Löwik who, between 2009-2014, held two separate positions as Director of Research and Market Information, and then as Director of Professional Standards.
Löwik will bring a fresh perspective to the role of INREV CEO, having recently gained valuable experience in two other significant global real asset organisations. The first of these was launching the Global Infrastructure Investor Association (GIIA) – a key lobbying organisation for the infrastructure industry. Most recently, she was Head of Operations for the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB). Her appointment further strengthens the quality of the existing management team.
With a deep understanding of the issues affecting the global real estate industry, Löwik is well placed to help strengthen INREV’s ties with other important associations such as ANREV, NCREIF and PREA, with which it already works closely. Her experiences will also be invaluable in supporting the ongoing development of INREV’s global professional standards, as well as its industry-leading programme of research and market information, notably the evolution and implementation of the new Asset Level Index.
Marieke van Kamp, INREV’s Chairman, said: "Lonneke is a highly capable, enthusiastic and energetic leader. She knows INREV well and is dedicated to our main objective of furthering the transparency and best practice of our industry. Lonneke represents a new generation of leadership and it’s great to welcome her back to the fold."
Lonneke Löwik, INREV’s newly appointed CEO, said: "I’m very excited to return to INREV and to work with former colleagues and friends to champion the non-listed real estate industry. I’m re-joining INREV at a very exciting time for the association and for the industry and very much look forward to the challenges and triumphs ahead."
