MONTREAL, Nov. 21, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Daniel Fournier, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Ivanhoé Cambridge, is pleased to announce the following appointments to the Company's senior management team:

Strategy and Capital Allocation

"As he has served on our Board of Directors and its Audit Committee for several years, Mr. Morroni is already very familiar with our organization, the real estate industry and its challenges," Mr. Fournier said. "We are relying on him to give a fresh boost to our strategic direction, at a time when we are experiencing strong growth both here in Canada and internationally. We are certain that he will prove to be a valuable asset for Ivanhoé Cambridge's senior leadership team and that he will also make an important contribution to our management of capital allocation."

Growth Markets
Rita-Rose Gagné, until now responsible for strategy at the Company, is appointed Executive Vice President, Growth Markets, effective immediately.
