RELATED TOPICS​

GRESB, an ESG data provider for real assets, has appointed Lonneke Löwik as the new Head of Operations and member of the GRESB Management Team. 

In this new position, Löwik, an experienced executive with an established record in the real asset sector, will oversee GRESB’s business operations and manage GRESB’s growing Amsterdam headquarters. She will help GRESB continue to expand the scope and quality of its assessments for real estate portfolios, real estate debt providers and infrastructure assets.

“Lonneke brings more than a decade of experience in the real estate and infrastructure sectors to GRESB,” says Nils Kok, CEO and co-founder, GRESB. “Through her leadership and industry know-how, we can ensure that GRESB continues to deliver comprehensive ESG information and integrated solutions that help investors to understand and effectively engage with their investments, creating greater transparency and improving the sustainability performance of real assets.”

Before joining GRESB, Löwik organised the launch of the Global Infrastructure Investor Association (GIIA), a lobbying organisation for the infrastructure asset class. Prior to GIIA, Löwik was the Director of Research and Market Information, and later the Director of Professional Standards at INREV, the European Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles. At INREV, Löwik was responsible for a comprehensive revision of the INREV guidelines, which included 18 months of industry consultation and engagement with more than 300 industry players and organisations across Europe, Asia and the United States. Earlier in her career Löwik worked for Deutsche Bank.

“I am excited to join GRESB, the industry standard for sustainability assessment with a now expanded scope to a broader range of real assets. I look forward to working with the GRESB team to bring innovative products and investment-grade ESG data to the real asset sector. Investors need standardized monitoring and benchmarking tools to help them monitor and manage assets and investment managers, to achieve their long-term return objectives and understand the risks,” says Löwik.

Löwik holds a Master of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Technology Delft in the Netherlands and a Master of Science in European Property Development and Planning from University College London.
