Oxford strengthens European debt team
Oxford Properties Group, a global real estate investor, asset manager and business builder, has appointed Tina Pristovsek as Vice President, Real Estate Finance & Capital Markets – Europe. Based in London, Tina will help develop and implement financing strategies for Oxford’s European business.
Pristovsek will also be responsible for monitoring and managing the company’s €3 billion (£2.7 billion) existing European debt portfolio, including coordinating its loan compliance efforts in the region. In addition, she will continue to build and strengthen relationships with Oxford’s European and global lending partners.
Pristovsek joins Oxford from Bank of America, where she spent 11.5 years and was most recently a Director in the EMEA Real Estate Structured Finance team in London, responsible for leading a number of large, high-profile transactions including the £1.25 billion (€1.13 billion) sustainability-linked refinancing of 22 Bishopsgate, the flagship state of the art City of London office tower. Prior to Bank of America, Pristovsek worked with the EMEA Commercial Real Estate team at Deutsche Bank, also based in London.
Mike DeGier, Senior Vice President, Real Estate Finance & Capital Markets at Oxford Properties, commented: “We are excited to have Tina join our Real Estate Finance team at Oxford. Tina is a highly experienced professional who has been involved in a number of major transactions over the course of her career. She brings highly valuable insights to our team and will greatly bolster the strength of our European debt team, as well as key relationships that are critical drivers of success.”
Tina Pristovsek, Vice President, Real Estate Finance & Capital Markets – Europe at Oxford Properties, added: “The last year has seen global interest rates rise substantially, which presents an opportunity for forward-thinking companies like Oxford to build competitive advantage via innovative financing strategies. Oxford has already established an impressive track record in real estate finance globally and I look forward to working with the team to build that further.”
