Graham Edwards has been the CEO for the property company Telereal, which was founded in 2001, and now Telereal Trillium, which was formed in 2009. But now he is going to step up from being the CEO to being the company’s new chairman.
The change of positions are as follows: Russell Gurnhill will succeed to chief executive, Adam Dakin will be the new managing director, while Graeme Hunter will continue to be the group property director, and Michael Hackenbroch will also continue to be the group finance director.
Graham Edwards claims that for a while they already had planned the change of positions for the company, and that they made sure everything was well thought out because they plan to continue to deliver great business regardless of the change of positions.
When Telereal was founded, Graham Edwards led the company into a 30-year strategic property partnership with formerly known British Telecom, now known as BT Plc. With the £2.38 billion deal, Telereal was able to acquire 6,700 properties and 59.2 million square feet of area. It’s thanks to Graham Edwards that the company’s business was able to grow.
And in 2009 Graham Edwards made another huge impact on Telereal. He was able to obtain Trillium from Land Securities Group Plc, from which then he created Telereal Trillium. And so, Telereal Trillium soon became the market leader in property outsourcing because the company began to create a business with an annual revenue of £1 billion.
Graham Edwards was able to successfully expand the company during his time as CEO because of the clients he brought into the company. The company has also won awards with Graham Edwards as the CEO, with awards like Investors in People (2006), and The Norwood Property Lunch Property Deal of the Year (2009). And in 2016 Telereal Trillium was recognized as The Sunday Times Top Track List of 100 Biggest Privately-Owned Companies.
Graham Edwards has committed himself immensely to improve Telereal Trillium, and now as the new chairman who knows what next accomplishment he will succeed at. We will just have to wait and see.
