Real estate financier and investment manager Qualitas has appointed Brian Delaney to its board of advisory directors.
The appointment filled a vacancy created by the retirement of Carol Schwartz as a director after 12 years of service.
Michael Schoenfeld, Qualitas board chair, said Delaney was a valuable addition who brought over 30 years’ experience and a deep understanding of domestic and offshore markets.
“Brian brings a wealth of strategic expertise and networks to support the next phase of growth at Qualitas,” Schoenfeld said.
Brian was a graduate from the Harvard Business School Executive Education Program, a life member of the Association of Superannuation Funds (ASFA), a fellow of ASFA and the Australian Institute of Company Directors and was also a director of Lonsec Financial Group and the Trawalla Group.
Delaney also held roles at QIC as executive director of strategy, clients and global markets, and US senior managing director.
He led QIC’s efforts to foster client relationships and business development opportunities in the US providing insights on investment trends to inform corporate strategy and investment teams across four offices in NYC, San Francisco, Cleveland, and Los Angeles.
Delaney also held roles at AMP Capital as director of the client, product and marketing division where he was responsible for all institutional, retail and self-managed super fund (SMSF) strategies, and served as a member of the executive team.
