Kylie O'Connor has been promoted the lead role at AMP Capital's real estate division, and she will join the investment firm's leadership group.

Ms O'Connor is currently AMP Capital Real Estate's Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director of Separate Accounts.

She will replace Carmel Hourigan who is leaving the business.

As Head of Real Estate, Ms O'Connor will lead the team managing more than A$28 billion of commercial real estate on behalf of institutional and retail investors across equity and debt investment solutions.

This includes the management of AMP Capital's integrated fund, investment, development and property management platform, as well as its strategic global partnerships.

"Highly regarded by our clients, our team and within the industry, she's ready to lead the next phase of growth for our real estate business," said AMP Capital CEO, Boe Pahari.

"Kylie has a deep breadth of both commercial and real estate investment experience and will bring a strong focus on delivering investment outcomes for our clients. I also value her contribution to the wide and diverse views in the leadership group."

Ms O'Connor joined AMP Capital in 2015 as Fund Manager for AMP Capital Diversified Property Fund, before taking on the role of COO in 2018. She has 25 years' experience in property funds management and has been involved in the delivery of several large development projects on behalf of wholesale investors.

Prior to AMP Capital, she held a number of senior fund management, audit and advisory roles at Lendlease and Arthur Andersen.

"I'm pleased to be appointed to lead this first-class real estate business and join Boe's leadership team. With over 60 years' heritage in managing iconic real estate for local and global investors, we have an excellent foundation of depth of talent, premium assets and great client relationships on which to grow the business," Ms O'Connor said.

"While COVID 19 has created challenges for the industry, we're constantly engaging with tenants, customers and investors to find the right outcome, and I'm confident in our ability to deliver for our clients, our people and our shareholders."

Also announced Luke Briscoe will take on the role as Chief Operating Officer, Real Estate, reporting to Ms O'Connor, where he will oversee the operations of the business while seeking opportunities to enhance the real estate platform.

Mr Briscoe held the position of Managing Director, Office & Logistics for the past five years and as Chief Operating Officer will also lead its circa $10 billion separate accounts business.
Ms O'Connor will report to Boe Pahari and join AMP Capital's leadership group effective immediately.
