Before joining AMP Capital, he was chief executive officer of Tenix Infrastructure and prior to that was chief executive of Lend Lease Capital Services where he was responsible for the development and implementation of its strategy for the infrastructure sector.

Pahari, who joins as head of European infrastructure, was recently named as head of infrastructure Asia Pacific, the website states.
