Feliciano, who is global head of real estate, private markets at Manulife Investment Management, is taking over the role from Stephen Blewitt, the interim chairman. Manulife Investment Management is the sponsor of MUST.

Feliciano, who is also currently a non-executive director of the board, will also assume Blewitt’s role as a member of the nominating and remunerating committee.

“Marc has significant experience in the US real estate sector and will assist the management team in developing and implementing strategies to drive sustainable growth for our business and investors,” says Paul Lorentz, president and CEO of Manulife Investment Management. “The board and I would like to thank Stephen Blewitt for his leadership and many contributions over the years. He graciously took this role on a temporary basis after his retirement from Manulife Investment Management and we’re grateful for his service and stewardship.”

“Marc is a highly experienced real estate investment professional who has spent nearly three decades in public and private real estate investment management in the US. With his leadership on the board, I am confident that Manulife US REIT is well positioned to prevail over the market challenges, and to uncover relevant investment opportunities as markets stabilise,” says Blewitt.
