Goodman’s chief executive officer for Europe, Jeff Pulsford, is to leave the company as part of a European shake-up.

The Australian-listed company said this morning: ‘Goodman announces today, the departure of Jeff Pulsford formerly CEO of UK and European Business Parks who is leaving to pursue other opportunities.’

The news comes on the same day that Goodman announced the sale of Goodman Property Investors – a wholly-owned direct and indirect fund management subsidiary – to Aberdeen Asset Management in a £109m deal.

Pulsford took the reins as chief executive officer at Goodman after the company bought Arlington Securities in December 2005, where he was a finance director.
