GMG Asset Management has hired Didier Prod’Hom as a Senior Real Estate Analyst following the company’s FINMA license extension in May 2021.
Didier joins GMG with more than 30 years of experience in architecture, construction and real estate development in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. His previous appointments include Director of Real Estate Development for the Swiss-based international group Marti Construction and Real Estate Manager for several private and public institutions, including the pension fund Cap Prévoyance, the Commune of Geneva, the City of Geneva, and SIG (services industriels de Genève). Prior to this, Didier worked as Project Manager at several architecture firms, notably Groupe H and Bernard Erbeia. He currently serves as Vice-President of the Swiss Cantonal Urban Commission and is Municipal Advisor for the City of Carouge (Geneva, Switzerland).
Didier will continue to use his expertise at GMG, where he will develop the Swiss arm of the company’s real estate activities. In May 2021, the company was granted an additional FINMA license extension, which allows the asset manager to offer international real estate opportunities to both private and institutional clients.
Mathieu Saint-Cyr, Chief Executive Officer of GMG said: “We’re excited that Didier has joined our team in Geneva, where his knowledge, experience and network will be instrumental in solidifying and further developing our Real Estate business, which has seen very rapid growth over the past quarters. I am thrilled to see this new business taking off and very much looking forward to building the team around Didier’s expertise and guidance.”
Dave Elzas, Executive Chairman of GMG said: “After taking a brief hiatus from the Swiss real estate market, we’re glad to be back in our prime space. I’m proud of the work the that we’re doing at GMG and am confident of our continued success having attracted such highly skilled teams of professionals.”
GMG’s real estate business has experienced strong quarterly growth, driven by new partnerships and a pipeline of funds due to be launched later in 2021 and 2022.
