Graham Edwards is the chief executive officer for one of the United Kingdom’s largest property companies Telereal Trillium. He has been the CEO of this company since it began as Telereal in December of 2001. He began the transaction which led to 6,700 properties being transferred from The B Pears Trust and William Pears Group to Telereal (Glassdoor). This historic transfer covered 59.2 million square feet which is responsible for housing one percent of the UK’s workforce. This deal also includes a 30 year partnership with BT Group Plc for Telereal Trillium.
As one of the UK’s largest property companies, Telereal Trillium manages a portfolio worth £6 billion with annual revenues in excess of £1 billion (http://www.fasttrack.co.uk/company_profile/telereal-trillium/). As a result, Telereal is the market leader in property outsourcing thanks to provisions in their deal which allowed the vacating of BT properties over time. This has opened the door for the adoption of changing operational requirements which have in turn allowed BT to reduce their estate size by 30 percent or more. With these properties now vacated, Telereal was able to realize their value and even redevelop them in some cases to further their potential value for the companies.
In January of 2009, Graham Edwards led negotiations with Land Securities Group Plc in order to acquire Trillium. Upon its acquisition, Telereal Trillium as we know it today, was created. The company continues to prosper due to its adherence to company values of diligence and attention to detail. Under Graham’s leadership, the business is cultivating a team of talented employees that are motivated and dedicated to their personal prosperity and fullfillment as well as that of the company.
Edwards himself studied Economics at the University of Cambridge in England. He is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ACA), the Association of Corporate Treasures (AMCT), the UK Society of Investment Professionals and a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (FRICS). With almost 17 years of experience with Telereal, coupled with former positions at Talisman Global Asset Management and Merrill Lynch Investment Management, the forecast is positive for Telereal Trillium under his direction and guidance.
