Director and chief investment officer property for AMP Capital Andrew Bird has announced his retirement after a 37-year career in the property sector in Asia Pacific and the UK. He is to be replaced by current chief operating officer property Adam Tindall, who will formally take up the role in March 2015.
Mr Tindall has been with AMP since 2009, and was previously executive directory property and infrastructure for Macquarie Capital and prior to that chief executive of Bovis Lend Lease.
AMP Capital chief executive Stephen Dunne paid tribute to the significant contribution Mr Bird has made to AMP Capital.
“Under Andrew’s stewardship, AMP Capital’s property business has flourished, growing funds under management to A$17.7 billion. He has delivered strong investment performance to our clients both in Australia and internationally. Together with reshaping our investment offering and activating our A$5 billion development pipeline, he leaves the property business in great shape,” Mr Dunne said.
