Nuveen Appoints Chris Lipton to lead Timberland Investment Specialist GreenWood Resources
GreenWood Resources, a Nuveen investment specialist in forestry assets, appointed Chris Lipton as Head of Timberland Investment beginning April 1.
Based in Portland, Oregon, Lipton will oversee a team of 200 employees in 10 countries and will be responsible for GreenWood’s investment platform and operations. He will also develop the company’s future strategy for timberland development.
GreenWood is one of the top ten managers of timberland globally with more than 741K acres across all assets and $1.7B of assets under management. GreenWood has attracted increased interest in land-based investments, as investors around the world work towards achieving carbon neutral portfolios.
“We’re delighted to welcome Chris to the GreenWood team,” said Martin Davies, President & CEO of Westchester Group Investment Management who oversees timberland investments alongside farmland. “Chris will be joining a very talented and experienced group, where his wealth of expertise will prove invaluable as we continue to strengthen our global capabilities.”
With more than 25 years of experience working in timberland investment, Lipton joins GreenWood from Hancock Natural Resource Group, where he was Managing Director for Timberland Mergers & Acquisitions. Previously, Lipton held senior positions at BTG Pactual Timberland Investment Group and Longview Timber Corp, where he developed extensive experience leading all phases of timberland transactions and operations throughout North America, South America and Australasia.
