Simon Hunter appointed to lead Invesis in Australia

Invesis today announces the appointment of Simon Hunter to lead its business in Australia.


Simon’s appointment marks a key milestone in the implementation of Invesis’ five year strategy, which includes a commitment to growing its business in Australia.  Building on the existing investment in the Cross River Rail PPP in Brisbane, and its recent investment in the landmark Ground Lease Model 2 housing project in Melbourne, Invesis has an ambition to secure further PPP, social/affordable housing and wider infrastructure investments to become a significant player in the Australian market.

Simon joins Invesis from a senior role at Plenary Group, one of the leading investors, developers and managers of PPPs in Australia.  He has spent over 20 years in the PPP industry with previous senior roles at AMP Capital, Pacific Partnerships and ABN AMRO.  Simon will start his new role in April and will be based in Sydney, working alongside Senior Investment Manager Liselotte Koppenol.  He will have a remit covering the whole of Australia and New Zealand.

Invesis Chief Executive Officer, Chris Williams, said: “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Simon Hunter to lead Invesis Australia.  The commitment Invesis has shown to the Australian market and the rapid progress we have made in implementing our strategy attracted an extremely high calibre field of candidates for our role.  Simon stood out for us as someone with deep experience of the market, a high level of expertise – but most importantly he demonstrates the values and integrity that underpin the way Invesis wants to do business.  Under Simon’s leadership I am excited for our future prospects in Australia.”

Following his appointment Simon Hunter said: “I am excited to join Invesis and lead the development of the business in Australia.  The organisation as a whole has huge experience in PPPs from over 20 years of investing, developing and managing projects in Europe.  I am looking forward to working alongside some real industry experts and leveraging the lessons learned from developing and managing over 50 PPP assets.  With their long-term investment strategy focused on delivering sustainable infrastructure and a positive impact on society, Invesis has a tremendous opportunity to become an significant player in the Australian market and I am looking forward to developing the partnerships with government agencies, co-investors, contractors and advisors to make that happen.”
