QSix strengthens team with two new senior appointments

Lynn Gilbert joins as Senior Adviser and Miriam Macor joins as Head of Private Markets  

QSix (formerly PMM Group), the established specialist real estate asset manager, is pleased to announce two new senior appointments.  

Lynn Gilbert will become a senior adviser to the business, advising and supporting the Senior Management team in fundraising and deal sourcing opportunities while Miriam Macor will become Head of Private Markets, leading on capital raising and working closely with the Commercial Real Estate (CRE) debt and Affordable Housing (AH) teams.  

Lynn has had a 30-year career in the banking and capital markets sector and currently serves as a Non-Executive Director at Hyde Housing Association, one of the UK’s largest housing associations. Lynn has also recently served as Senior Adviser to Laurus Property Partners and Fund Manager for the senior debt funds at M&G Investments. Lynn previously worked as Head of Real Estate Finance at Barclays Capital and Morgan Stanley, where she also served as Head of Property Finance. 

Miriam was formerly Principal Business Development at Fair Oaks Capital from 2016, taking responsibility for marketing and sales strategy across Europe and raising over $600 million of capital to date from new institutional and private European investors. Prior to this, Miriam spent seven years at Fidante Partners (formerly Dexion Capital), an Alternative Boutique Investment Bank where she was responsible for the distribution of alternative investment funds in both public and private markets across Europe. 

These appointments follow several other new joiners to the business, including Aziz Gani who joined as Acquisitions Director for Affordable Housing and Anna Traniello, who also joined from Fair Oaks Capital as Head of Marketing. The strengthening of the team highlights QSix’s ongoing momentum as it focuses on further growth through new and existing pan-European alternative real estate strategies. 

QSix launched the CRE strategy in 2017 and has since then consistently exceeded its target of 6% IRR. The imminent launch of QSix’s Affordable Housing strategy will balance the aim of achieving attractive returns for investors while making a positive contribution to society. 

QSix, which recently rebranded from PMM Group, was founded in 2006 and has more than £1bn of assets under management in real estate debt and equity investments in the UK and Europe. 

Mike Hilton, Managing Partner at QSix: 

“We are very delighted to welcome Lynn and MiriamOur recent rebrand marked a step change in our growth strategy and I am confident that we will benefit from both of their significant expertise as we continue to grow our assets under management, through new and existing strategies.”

Miriam Macor, Head of Private Markets: 

“QSix is a highly experienced manager with a great track record of uncovering differentiated investment opportunities which generate risk-adjusted returns for investors.I was attracted by QSix’s deeply ingrained culture of innovation and believe there is huge opportunity to leverage this experience as the business embarks on its next phase of growth.”
