What started as Trillium in 1997 with a single government contract to manage one complex for the United Kingdom’s Department for Work and Pensions, has grown into the UK’s largest privately held property management company, Telereal Trillium. At the top of this influential company is CEO Graham Edwards, who has carefully steered the company since 2001. Over the years, he has worked to increase government contracts to a staggering 3.2 billion pounds. As impressive as that number may be, it is only one part of the company’s ever evolving real estate portfolio. Last September, Graham Edwards acquired the Network Rail’s commercial real estate portfolio with the intention of renovating railway arches into commercial properties aimed towards commuters. Increasing the value of these properties will increase investment in railway infrastructure. Besides the previously mentioned investments, Telereal Trillium invests in residential properties. Over the next five years, Graham Edwards intends to develop two thousand residential units. This investment is in addition to numerous luxury properties the company has already developed.
While many people view real estate as a very secure market to invest in, the truth is far more volatile than that. Luckily, Telereal Trillium has Graham Edwards to guide it through this sometimes turbulent market. He began his career by studying economics at Cambridge before going to work for Merrill Lynch managing investments. From there he moved on to the BT Group Plc’s property department. During his time at Talisman, Graham Edwards registered his division in asset management. In addition, he is a member of several institutions, including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, the Association of Corporate Treasurers, and the UK Society of Investment Professionals. With all of this experience, Graham Edwards is more than prepared to meet any challenge the future real estate market can serve up to him.
