Ryan Lee appointed CEO of Atrium European Real Estate
Ryan Lee has assumed the position of CEO of Atrium European Real Estate. This change is part of a proactive succession plan agreed by the Board of AERE and its shareholders. The new CEO has been with the company since 2015 and until now served as CFO of Atrium Group. During his seven years with Atrium, Ryan Lee has demonstrated with his drive, focus on execution, creativity and proven leadership skills that he is the ideal candidate for the position of CEO of the company. This appointment signifies continuity in management and demonstrates an investment in Atrium’s strong management team and a business that has been built on solid foundations for years.
In his new role, Ryan will succeed Liad Barzilai, who has been with Gazit and Atrium for more than 15 years and whose professional development has been a success story for both companies.
