Crestbridge makes senior appointment to help clients meet increasing fund and corporate governance needs
In his new role, Gren will draw on his considerable global governance expertise to act as director on the growing number of fund and corporate entities Crestbridge administers on behalf of clients.
A real estate specialist with over 45 years of experience, Gren has worked with a broad range of real estate and numerous large, multi-national institutional investors and tenants throughout the UK, western and central Europe, Russia and North-East Asia. With significant experience in the management and administration of real estate funds, including substance, governance and management, he has acted as a board member for a range of regulated and non-regulated entities in various jurisdictions in Europe and Asia.
With a career that began at Richard Ellis in London, where he worked for 30 years, Gren has lived and worked in Russia and Central Europe and most recently as a private real estate consultant with continuing connections in N.E. Asia. Gren is a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and a member of the Luxembourg Institute of Directors.
On his new role, Gren commented:
“It is clearly an exciting time at Crestbridge, which has positioned itself strongly in the real estate market having expanded rapidly over the past few years. I’m looking forward to working with the Luxembourg team in tandem with the Jersey office in order to continue building upon this achievement.”
Daniela Klasén-Martin, Managing Director and Country Head for Crestbridge’s operation in Luxembourg, added:
“Gren has an exemplary track record and genuine senior level expertise in fund and corporate governance, and we are delighted to welcome him to the team in Luxembourg. We are currently seeing a real increase in demand for high quality fund and corporate administration services in Luxembourg, and Gren’s appointment gives us greater capacity to meet that demand and provide a specialist resource to investment committees for AIFM clients. All this combines to significantly enhance the service we offer to fund and corporate clients.”
