Australia appointments

Global real estate investment manager TH Real Estate has expanded its Australian team with the appointment of Chris Maher as Transaction Manager, and Lisa Peng as Real Estate Investment Analyst. Both will be based in Sydney and report to Nick Evans, TH Real Estate Executive Director and Head of Australia.

In his new role, Chris will work collaboratively with the region’s Head of Asset Management, Jayson Egan, and the business analytics function to provide support to TH Real Estate’s local business and Nick Evans. He will be responsible for transactions, financial modelling for potential opportunities, and managing the disposal of assets identified for sale.

Chris brings seven years’ valuation, analysis and underwriting experience across multiple sectors, with a good understanding of the real estate investment management industry. He joins from Vicinity Group, where he focused on transaction management of approximately $1.5bn worth of real estate. Prior to that, Chris held analyst roles at companies including Pembroke Real Estate and Challenger Limited.

In a newly-created role, Lisa will be responsible for providing analytical support, research, and financial analysis across the core functions of the TH Real Estate business in Australia, including equity investment and asset management.

Lisa has more than five years’ experience across property and financial analysis. She joins from St George Bank, where she was a real estate analyst and responsible for managing a portfolio of mid-market and institutional property clients with debt requirements up to A$100m. Prior to that, she worked at ANZ Corporate and Commercial Banking as a credit analyst, conducting due diligence and in-depth credit analysis of new and existing property investment deals across diverse asset classes.

Nick Evans, Executive Director and Head of Australia, at TH Real Estate comments: “These appointments reaffirm our commitment to building our business locally and will provide critical resourcing to support the growth of the business in Australia. Both Lisa and Chris have a knowledgeable understanding of the local market and will be a strong addition to our Australian team, supporting the growth of the business in this region.”

Established in Australia since April 2014, TH Real Estate has built a portfolio of Australian real estate assets of c.US$791m (A$1bn). The real estate specialist has also advised some of Australia’s largest institutional investors on their international real estate investments, including AustralianSuper and the Future Fund.
