RICS Governing Council elects next Senior Vice President

Tina Paillet has been elected as the next RICS Senior Vice President.

As a key ambassador for RICS, Tina will work as part of the global Presidential Team to advance strategic goals and create positive social impact in the built environment. Tina is an international real estate executive with over 25 years of experience in the built environment. For the past twelve years she has worked at Generali Real Estate, where she has overseen global asset management, development projects, technology and sustainable investing for the Group’s €32 billion real estate portfolio worldwide, including major office, retail and residential development projects across France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the UK.

Tina has served as the Chair of the RICS Europe Board since 2017, where she currently focuses on deploying member expertise and knowledge in the drive to “Build Back Better” following the COVID-19 pandemic. She is notably driving advocacy for public and private action to combat climate change, whilst embracing new technologies and the opportunities they present for our ways of working and living. She is also the European Ambassador for the World Green Building Council’s #BuildingLife campaign, promoting whole life cycle carbon accounting and the circular economy in the European building and construction industry.

Commenting on her appointment, Tina said “I am delighted to be joining the RICS Presidential Team at such a critical time for the built environment. Rising urbanisation, population growth and climate change will impact our daily lives to an ever-greater extent and we know that global cities will need expert advice from RICS professionals to find innovative ways of coping with these challenges – all whilst advancing the public interest. I feel strongly that now is the moment for us to step up and pave the way for a more inclusive and sustainable built environment.”

Tina will take up her role in late 2021, serving a one-year term before becoming President-Elect in 2022, and finally RICS President in 2023. RICS’ Governing Council elects a new Senior Vice President each year, with all Chartered Professionals (MRICS and FRICS) around the world eligible to apply for the position.
