Hines promotes Pozzato to HECF fund manager

International real estate firm Hines has appointed Simone Pozzato as fund manager of the Hines European Core Fund (HECF) following Peter Epping’s appointment as the firm’s new global head of ESG. Pozzato, a managing director at Hines in Europe, spent four years as deputy fund manager.

“This is an exciting time for the fund as we continue to evolve and reshape the balance of assets, while broadening our investor base, particularly from the United States and Asian markets. We see a great opportunity for diversified real estate funds that are able to take advantage of opportunities in different countries and sectors,” Pozzato said.
