10 April 2018
Telereal Trillium is pleased to announce a re-organisation of its senior management team effective from 1st April 2018.
Graham Edwards, who has been Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Telereal Trillium since it was formed in 2009, and previously CEO of Telereal since its foundation in 2001, has been appointed Executive Chairman and will be succeeded as CEO by Russell Gurnhill, formerly Joint Managing Director.
Under the new executive structure, Adam Dakin, also formerly Joint Managing Director at Telereal Trillium, takes on a new role as Managing Director with responsibility for new business and services. Graeme Hunter will continue to be responsible for all property matters within Telereal Trillium in his role as Group Property Director and Michael Hackenbroch will continue responsibility for financial matters as Group Finance Director.
All of the mentioned members of the executive team will report to Graham Edwards who will continue to oversee the strategic direction of the company.
The changes coincide with the conclusion of Telereal Trillium’s 20-year PRIME property outsourcing contract with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) on the 31st March 2018. They are in line with the company’s increased appetite to find and complete on new investment opportunities, to invest in its own estate, particularly in the areas of strategic land and residential development, and to continue the effective management of its existing £6.5bn property assets, and strategic property partnerships with BT, Aviva, DVLA and Royal Mail.
Graham Edwards, Executive Chairman at Telereal Trillium, said:
“This restructure has been planned for some time and will deliver a coordinated and appropriate response to the changing demands and priorities of our business. We have a highly experienced team in place to identify and create value for our stakeholders, deliver great service to our property partners, and contribute to the government's housebuilding targets in the areas of strategic land and residential development, while continuing to own and manage one of the UK's largest property portfolios.”
