Lendlease has brought on board CapitaLand veteran Keith Low to head its asset management business for Asia, according to an announcement by the Australian real estate developer this week.
In his new role, Low will be responsible for managing Asian operations for a real estate investment management business that oversees more than $17.5 billion worth of property assets via funds and separate mandates.
“Keith is responsible for the overall performance of the Lendlease-managed assets in Asia through strategic asset management,” Lendlease managing director of investment management for Asia Jyoti Ramchandani said in a statement. “With our growing portfolio of assets, he will play a vital role bringing with him his deep understanding of Asia real estate and contributing to the Lendlease integrated model.”
Prior to joining Lendlease, Low had spent six years with CapitaLand, serving most recently as General Manager for Retail Development for Capitaland Mall Asia in Singapore and Malaysia. As part of his responsibilities, Low acted as the head of the Capitaland Retail Malaysia Sdn Bhd joint venture to develop and manage CapitaLand’s first greenfield project with Sime Darby Property, one of the largest developers in Malaysia.
The National University of Singapore graduate also has previous experience with New York-based tourism developer Pyramid Management Group.
