CBRE Investment Management has made two appointments to its European direct private infrastructure team.

Gioia Torresi and Pav Lamba will be joining as directors. Reporting to the head of the European infrastructure investment practice, Lamba will be responsible for making European direct investments, while Torresi will focus on the asset management of the European direct infrastructure portfolio and on sustainability and governance.

Andreas Köttering, head of Europe private infrastructure at CBRE Investment Management, said: “We are excited that Gioia is joining the team and it’s also great to welcome Pav back into the CBRE Investment Management fold. Market dynamics are prompting more investors to consider infrastructure assets and our team is well regarded for its creation of long-term value for clients by identifying, acquiring, and managing high-quality investments and building sustainable comprehensive portfolios.”

He added: “Gioia and Pav have considerable experience between them, bringing the ideal expertise to the team as we look to capitalise on significant opportunities.”

Lamba is joining from Boston Consulting Group, where he was project leader advising on large-cap private equity deals and corporate turnarounds across Europe. He is re-joining the infrastructure investment team, having previously worked with CBRE IM as a senior associate in Toronto.

Torresi joins from Hermes Infrastructure where she was vice president on the asset management team. She previously worked at Whitehelm Capital as an analyst in London and her experience includes working at Mandarin Advisory and Lazard in Milan, Italy.

Torresi and Lamba are not the only new additions to the firm. A few weeks ago, it was reported that Henrik Skoog had been appointed to the role of CFO in the Nordics.
