EUROPE - Rob Wilkinson is leaving the Goodman Group to head up AEW Europe's fund management and separate accounts business.

Wilkinson will become managing director at AEW Europe on July 6, following five years at Goodman in Paris where he has most recently overseen the management and strategy for the firm's European Business Parks.

At Goodman, Wilkinson also oversaw a team responsible for fund management of seven sector-focused funds invested in logistics, retail and residential, and led the development, structuring and equity raising for new and existing funds.

In his new role, he will report to AEW Europe chief executive Christian Delaire.

"Rob has significant experience in real estate investment management
and his multi-cultural knowledge makes him exceptionally suitable for this role," Delaire said.
