New ESG head for Orchard Street

9th April 2024

Orchard Street Investment Management has appointed Kathryn Barber as head of responsibility and ESG. 

She joins the London-based investment manager from UK real estate investment trust GPE, where she was sustainability lead, portfolio and social impact. Previous roles include stints at UK real estate firms Hammerson and Intu Properties.

At Orchard Street, she will be support delivery of “measurable social and environmental impact” in its impact fund “as well as continuing to integrate and manage ESG across existing client portfolios.” Barber replaces Lora Brill, who has left Orchard Street but will continue to provide ESG consulting services.

Barney Rowe, partner at Orchard Street and portfolio manager for the impact fund, said: “Kathryn’s entire career has been focused on driving the ESG agenda forward within the UK real estate industry, and her wealth of experience will be important to the growth of our impact fund and the acceleration of our broader sustainability strategy.”
