Allison Daubert has been appointed chief strategy and M&A officer at Dallas-based Lincoln Property Co., a global, full-service real estate firm.
“With Ali at the forefront of identifying companies that complement our growth strategy and ensuring their successful integration, Lincoln will emerge as an active player in the M&A arena and as an ‘acquirer of choice’ for companies that align with Lincoln’s platform, culture and vision for the future,” Co-CEOs David Binswanger and Clay Duvall said in a joint statement. “Ali’s proven and capable leadership will be crucial as we aim to accelerate our growth through M&A.”
In her new role, Daubert helps drive Lincoln’s growth strategy through mergers and acquisitions, the first of which was the acquisition of RiverRock Real Estate Group which was announced earlier this month, doubling the size of Lincoln’s Property Management portfolio in the Western U.S.
In addition to M&A, Daubert also leads strategic initiatives in support of the company’s growth.
Experienced in transactions, fund administration, and managing private equity investments
Throughout her career, Daubert has participated in and consulted on hundreds of transactions representing billions in enterprise value, particularly in her most recent role at Baker Tilly. A partner there, Daubert oversaw buy-side, sell-side and carve-out engagements for both private equity and corporate clients.
In addition to her transactions work, Daubert founded Baker Tilly’s fund administration platform as well as led its GROW chapter in North Texas, an organization that supports the growth and development of women in the workplace.
Before Baker Tilly, Daubert was an investment professional at RUBICON Technology Partners in Silicon Valley where she managed billions of dollars in private equity investments, the company said. Daubert began her career at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
“Throughout its 60 years of business, Lincoln has established itself as one of the most respected and diversified real estate firms,” Daubert said in a statement. “As the company seeks to further enhance its service offerings, I look forward to partnering with like-minded businesses to accelerate our growth and lead the way for the company’s next 60 years.”
Part of a growth and succession plan
Lincoln Property said that Daubert’s hiring continues its growth and succession plan that was formally announced in February.
