Mr Tindall will take over from Mr Bird in March 2015.
Mr Bird, who has had a 37-year career in the property industry in the UK and Asia Pacific, has been responsible for AMP Capital’s property investment and management business since 2004.
“The promotion of Adam Tindall to the leadership team reflects the deep talent that exists within AMP Capital as well as the strength of our succession planning strategy,” AMP Capital chief executive Stephen Dunne said.
“As chief operating officer for the property team, he has a deep understanding and knowledge of the business, our clients and stakeholders and this will ensure a seamless changing of the guard when Andrew retires.”
Prior to joining AMP Capital Property in 2009, Mr Tindall worked for Macquarie Capital advisers as executive director for property and infrastructure.
