13th June 2024 | Jack Oliver

Redevco has appointed Veronica Gallo-Alvarez as head of investment management, as the real estate firm continues to strengthen its leadership team.

Reporting to Redevco’s CEO Neil Slater, Gallo-Alvarez will spearhead a team responsible for investment outcomes, transaction management, and research and strategy.

She joins from global asset manager Abrdn, where she was head of core European funds, responsible for multi-sector strategies investing in commercial pan-European real estate.

Gallo-Alvarez has 26 years of experience in continental European real estate, having been involved in fund management, acquisitions, asset management, research, and strategy.

Redevco is currently on a growth pathway focused on four key strategies: redeveloping retail properties into vibrant mixed-use or best-in-class high street assets, expanding its retail warehouse park and distribution platform, growing its presence across the broader pan-European residential sector, and special situation investments.

The firm is currently working on significant mixed-use projects on London’s Oxford Street, as well as in Paris, Hamburg, and the Netherlands.

The company also recently launched Redevco Capital Partners, based in London, focused on special situation equity and debt opportunities in real estate markets.

Neil Slater, Redevco CEO, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Veronica to Redevco. She is a fantastic investment professional bringing significant cross-sector industry experience. Veronica joins at an exciting time for the business. We are part of a wider ecosystem that has existed for over 180 years. We continue to evolve this fantastic real estate company with an even greater focus on creating amazing real estate outcomes for clients and being a force for good in the built environment.”

Veronica Gallo-Alvarez said: “I am excited to be joining Redevco at such an exciting time. It is fantastic to have an opportunity to help deliver real performance outcomes for clients in an organisation that has environmental and societal impact at the heart of all its activities through its “force for good” ethos. Redevco has a pioneering and distinctive approach to enhancing urban liveability and sustainability, demonstrated with its high-quality proprietary real estate portfolio spanning European markets. I look forward to working with Neil and the team to help further expand and strengthen the portfolio.”

Gallo-Alvarez becomes Redevco’s fourth key hire in 2024, with Sasha Silver joining in January as head of Global Client Group and Mark Beaumont as managing director of Redevco Capital Partners. More recently the company also brought in David Garden as chief of staff.
