Amro bolsters leadership team across UK and Europe

February 8th, 2023

We’re delighted to announce we have strengthened our senior leadership team with four key promotions.


Within the European student housing leadership team, Luis Lopez-Quinones Garcia and Pablo Garcia- Morales Osorio have each been promoted to Managing Director and appointed as Co-Heads of Iberia. They will work alongside recently appointed Senior Managing Director Rainer Nonnengässer, tasked with spearheading Amro’s drive into new student housing markets including Germany, the Netherlands and Austria.


Within the UK Build to Rent leadership team, Tom Donnachie has been promoted to Managing Director, UK Investment and Stephen Hole has been promoted to Managing Director, UK Development.


We are already in advanced discussions with long-term institutional investment partners as we begin a significant scale-up of our residential living investment platforms, targeting €2 billion gross portfolio value in our Europe student housing platform and £2 billion in our UK BTR vehicle within the next four years.


Director of Sustainability & ESG, Elisabetta Li Destri Nicosia, who joined the business in 2022, will work closely with both teams to implement sustainability strategies at asset, portfolio and corporate level as we double down on our NZC2025 target.

Amro Co-Founder and Group President, Ami Kotecha, said, “Rewarding outstanding performance is part of our ethos. I’m delighted to recognise the remarkable contribution of these team members, who have all taken ownership of Amro’s vision as a leader in sustainability and have contributed to this pivotal moment in our growth journey.”


Chairman and CEO Raj Kotecha added: “I’d like to offer my congratulations to our four new Managing Directors. It’s a daily pleasure to work alongside such a talented senior team and I look forward to achieving great success with them over the coming years.”
