Firm Hires Chief People Officer and European Head of HR

(HOUSTON) – Hines, the international real estate firm, is pleased to announce two additions to the firm’s Human Resources platform with the hiring of Stephanie Biernbaum and Mary Edmunds.

In this pivotal new role, she will oversee a team of more than 60 professionals, and all Human Resource activities and responsibilities worldwide, allowing the firm to further embrace evolving trends in career development, diversity and inclusion, analytics and other areas changing the traditional landscape of HR. Biernbaum will be working closely with David LeVrier, Stephanie Fore, Dana Morrey and our talented HR teams to map out a new global HR strategy.

Additionally, Mary Edmunds has joined Hines as the new head of Human Resources for Europe. Edmunds will report to Biernbaum, as well as CEO, Europe Lars Huber and will partner closely with Hines Country Heads across Europe to support the people-related aspects of their business strategies. She will also collaborate with other members of the HR team in Houston and beyond to help bring the best of the firm to all HR activities across Europe.

“These new roles were created to ensure we remain steadfast in our commitment to our greatest and most-valuable asset—our people,” stated Jeff Hines. “Stephanie, along with Mary, are poised to drive performance by partnering with executive leadership on key issues as we continue to grow and lead—while also recruiting and retaining the top talent in the real estate industry.”

Prior to McKinsey, she spent seven years at the global retailer Tiffany & Co. in various corporate HR roles.

With 25 years of professional experience, Edmunds joins Hines from global investor and Hines partner the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) where she has been in a senior HR leadership role for the past five years.
