Carsten Kebbedies was named head of business development, Asia-Pacific for TIAA Henderson Real Estate in Singapore.
The position is a new one for TH Real Estate, which was created in April 2014 as a joint venture owned 60% by TIAA-CREF and 40% by Henderson Group, said a Singapore-based spokeswoman for the firm.
Mr. Kebbedies will lead the firm’s product development and institutional sales efforts for the Asia-Pacific region, the spokeswoman said.
He will report to Chris Reilly, Singapore-based managing director, Asia-Pacific, as well as Austin Mitchell, the firm's London-based head of global business development.
Mr. Kebbedies relocated to Singapore for the firm from Frankfurt, where he served as director of global business development. Information on plans to fill that director of global business development role couldn’t immediately be learned.
