LaSalle Investment Management Names Americas Co-Heads

LaSalle Investment Management has appointed Kristy Heuberger and Brad Gries to co-heads of the Americas. They will succeed Jason Kern, who has served as the firm’s Americas CEO since 2013 and has mutually agreed to step down from this role to pursue other interests.

Heuberger, which joined LaSalle in 2015, currently serves as LaSalle’s head of U.S. asset management. Gries joined in 2017 and currently serves as Americas co-CIO & head of U.S. transactions. As co-heads of the Americas, they’ll jointly be responsible for overseeing all personnel, operational, portfolio management across the region, while maintaining existing leadership of the transactions and asset management activities.

Mark Gabbay, global CEO at LaSalle, said: “I am confident that Kristy and Brad’s leadership experience at LaSalle, combined with their strong track record of investing and managing assets will help further accelerate performance and service to our clients.”
