Greg Chubb has resigned from Charter Hall to take up a senior operations role with Hong Kong-listed Link REIT.

He will be replaced by Ben Ellis as the retail chief executive and an executive director of Charter Hall Retail REIT, which is listed on the ASX.

Link Asset Management, the manager of Link REIT, said Chubb will lead and oversee the group's asset management, leasing, and corporate functions, as well as operations in Australia, the United Kingdom, and other Asia locations, excluding China and Hong Kong.

He will also work closely with the investment team to strengthen Link's strategic and business presence in international markets as the group pursues its corporate strategy.

Chubb will join Link in April and will report to George Hongchoy, Link's chief executive.

Previously, he held various leadership roles in Australia at Coles Supermarkets, Mirvac, and Lend Lease, and was based in Hong Kong with Jones Lang LaSalle between 2009 and 2010.

Speaking of Chubb's appointment, Hongchoy said: "His expertise in shaping commercial portfolio, particularly in delivering an optimal business mix with strong customer appeal through active asset management, will be invaluable to us as we continue to advance our role as a world-class real estate manager and investor."

Chubb commented: "As Link seeks to continue to build its portfolio, and to reinforce its leading position in the REIT industry, I am very much looking forward to working with my new colleagues on the opportunities and challenges ahead."
