DCAM appoints Anthony Butler as CIO
Delin Capital Asset Management (DCAM), a pan-European logistics real estate owner, investor and developer, has appointed Anthony Butler as Chief Investment Officer (CIO).
Based in DCAM’s London office, Butler (pictured), will work alongside Managing Director Ekaterina Avdonina and Finance Director Andy Colman, with responsibility for implementing DCAM’s investment decisions across its key markets, as well as driving inward investment to support the business’ ambitious growth plans.
Butler brings nearly 30 years of international real estate experience. Prior to joining DCAM he spent two years at Generali Real Estate as Global Co-Head of Investment Transactions and Global Head of Indirect Investments, managing and executing the global acquisition and sales strategy, as well as overseeing the indirect property portfolio. He also sat on both the Global Investment and Management Committees. For six years before that he set up and latterly ran TIAA-CREF’s UK and European platform, growing the business to circa GBP3 billion of assets under management. He was also instrumental in merging the business to help create TH Real Estate.
In 2008 he set up AIM, an independent Property Investment and Asset Management Company. Earlier roles include Head of European Asset Management at MGPA (now Blackrock) and Head of Asset Management, UK, at RREEF (now Deutsche Asset Management). He also has experience working for the major real estate consultancies Donaldson’s (now DTZ) and Hillier Parker (now CBRE). Anthony is a Chartered Surveyor and member of the Investment Property Forum.
Ekaterina Avdonina, Managing Director of DCAM, says: “Anthony brings outstanding international investment experience and a proven track record of success derived from working at a number of real estate investment and fund management businesses. We have ambitious plans to rapidly grow the business in 2018 and Anthony will play a key role in delivering this, leveraging his global perspective and significant network to drive forward our existing investment strategy and identify new avenues to grow our logistics investments. We continue to build a talented team at DCAM and I am personally very much looking forward to working closely with Anthony.”
Butler adds: “It continues to be both a very exciting and dynamic time for the logistics sector. Working with both Ekaterina and Andy, I am very much looking forward to helping DCAM deliver first class investment products and to growing an already successful platform.”
