Charter Hall appoints Office CEO from AMP Capital

Executive Move


AMP Capital's global head of real estate, Carmel Hourigan, has been appointed office CEO at Charter Hall.

She replaces Adrian Taylor, who is leaving the organisation to pursue other opportunities.

Part of the AMP Capital global leadership team, Hourigan has been with AMP Capital for just shy of five years and was in the conversation for the CEO appointment. She was responsible for the organisation's $29 billion property investment and management business, looking after the portfolio management and performance of office, retail, and industrial real estate.

Before joining AMP Capital, Hourigan was the chief investment officer for the GPT Group, was the managing director of investment management at Lendlease, and held senior roles with Challenger and Colonial First State.

"We welcome Carmel to Charter Hall and know that she will lead our Office team and complement our EXCO in delivering for our customers and driving both growth and resilience across the Group," said group managing director and CEO David Harrison.

"The diverse sector experience and leadership roles Carmel has played will be invaluable in supporting the growth of Charter Hall, as we continue to strive for outperformance and excellence on behalf of investors and shareholders."
