Hospitality trained, she has 15+ years track record within the real estate industry, advocating for alternative and living asset classes. Starting her career on the consultancy side at TRI and JLL Hotels/JLL Capital Markets, she then moved into asset management within the private and public sectors. Some of Natalia’s appointments included Asset Manager for two open-ended funds at Legal & General, followed by senior leadership roles at London Borough of Lewisham and Asia Pacific Investment Partners, running multiple teams across various property disciplines and geographies.
Natalia is an active volunteer, Trustee in the Charity sector and is about to become a NED for a Housing Association Board. On top of this, she is an experienced mentor and believes in diversity of backgrounds and creation of an equitable environment in the workplace for perspectives to thrive and for young talent to realise their full potential.
Natalia has a very busy family life with her husband and three young kids, including 18 months old twins. She loves cross country skiing in the Russian woods, teaching tennis to kids and travelling. When her kids are a bit older and the world is a more stable place (let’s wish for that), her dream is to continue to climb the summits of the world.
