Queensgate makes two senior hiresProperty Week
Queensgate Investments has expanded its senior leadership team with the appointment of Gary Jones to chief operating officer and Daniel Peart to general counsel.
Jones, who joins from Aprirose, brings 27 years of experience in commercial, financial, and international tax structuring expertise, while Peart joins from Blackstone.
Jones said: “I am delighted to take on the role of COO at Queensgate, and look forward to helping facilitate the firm’s global ambitions for the real estate and hospitality sectors.”
Peart added: “I’m thrilled to be working with the team at Queensgate and joining the company at an exciting time as we progress into post-pandemic economic recovery.”
Managing and advising on around £3bn of assets, Queensgate Investments completed the debt restructuring of lifestyle hospitality platform Generator Group last month. In 2019 the group also acquired the Grange St Paul’s, Grange Tower Bridge, Grange City, and Grange Holborn for around £1bn, and owns the 906-room Kensington Forum Hotel in London.
Jason Kow, founder and chief executive of Queensgate said: “Gary Jones and Daniel Peart both bring a wealth of experience and we are proud to welcome them to Queensgate Investments. They are two very important additions which will further strengthen our team and their appointments signal a very exciting time for the company.”
