Hammerson hires new chief executive
Shopping centre owner Hammerson has appointed Rita-Rose Gagné as its new chief executive.
Gagné was previously president of growth markets at Ivanhoé Cambridge where she oversaw $7.6 billion of real estate assets across Asia Pacific and Latin America. Prior to joining Ivanhoé in 2006, she worked in various property markets across the world, including the UK, France and Germany.
Robert Noel, chairman of Hammerson, said: “I am delighted that Rita-Rose will join Hammerson as our next CEO. She has an excellent track record in international real estate investment, building high-quality teams, developing strategic partnerships, execution and delivering results. On behalf of the board, and all colleagues in the business, I look forward to welcoming Rita-Rose to Hammerson and working with her when she joins.”
Gagné is expected to join the business before the end of the year. In the meantime, current chief executive David Atkins will remain with the company until Gagné takes up her new position.
