Mr Andrea Ruckstuhl has been appointed CEO of Europe by Lendlease, effective immediately. Ruckstuhl, a former head of Italy and Continental Europe, succeeds Neil Martin, who is retiring. Contract Journal reports that he began working for Lendlease in 2005, and the firm credits him with “playing a vital role in positioning the Group as a leading real estate company in Italy across the investments, development, and construction divisions.”
Tony Lombardo, CEO of Lendlease Global, noted that Andrea was essential to the company’s success in Italy. This includes working with the Italian government to secure Milan’s revolutionary MIND precinct, which includes bringing on CPP Investments and project partners and advancing Milano Santa Giulia’s development by introducing our capital partner, PSP Investments.
“Andrea will use his knowledge, skill, and stakeholder management abilities across the full of our Europe business in his new role as CEO of Europe,” says the statement. “The contributions Andrea will make to our Global Leadership Team starting today are something else I’m looking forward to. I want to congratulate Neil Martin for his many years of service to Lendlease and his dedication to ensuring a smooth leadership transition in the upcoming months.”
