Dominicé’s Real Estate Team is Expanding
Dominicé is pleased to announce the recent addition of two experienced managers to its real estate team. Maureen du Sordet joined the company as Project Manager in February, while Marie Lemaître assumed the role of Finance Manager in March.

Their complementary expertise and experience will strengthen the fund's positioning in terms of performance, value creation and portfolio development.
Marie Lemaître's experience in finance, controlling and auditing, gained in international companies, makes her an invaluable asset to the team as a Finance Manager.
