INREV has announced that its CEO, Matthias Thomas, will be leaving the association in the autumn.
Thomas joined INREV as CEO in August 2010, and since then has continued to expand the association’s remit, introducing several key new initiatives, including focused public affairs; a global research agenda; and an expansion of the performance indices to add both quarterly and global indices. Over the past seven years, he has overseen the successful development and growth of INREV, which has seen corporate membership numbers reach 396 currently.
Thomas will leave INREV in September to join a real estate management company based in Berlin. The INREV Management Board has begun the search for a new CEO, with a view to identifying a replacement before Thomas leaves.
INREV Chairman, Neil Harris, said: ‘Matthias has played a pivotal role overseeing a strong INREV team focussed on delivering a very high standard and broad range of services and events for our membership and ensuring that the association is at the forefront of thought leadership and research to support the development and growth of our industry in Europe and beyond. He’ll be missed, but we wish him well with his next venture. In the meantime, we’ll continue to benefit from Matthias’ input over the next few months, whilst we search for a high calibre replacement.’
