It is almost impossible to talk about real estate and property development in the UK without Telereal Trillium coming up. It is also impossible to mention the success of Telereal Trillium without bringing up the acting Chief executive Officer, Graham Edwards. The former Talisman Global Asset management leader has been instrumental to collaborations that brought together some companies over time to successful ventures. The Real Estate Guru is keen to point out Merrill Lynch Investment Management and BT Group Plc as the breeding grounds for his immense knowledge in great partnerships and reputable business decisions. Graham attributes most of his success to his team and especially Ian Ellis, who was then the CEO at Telereal. Graham and Ellis worked together to create and embed a culture at Telereal that has seen it to what it is today.
After Ellis left Telereal to head Trillium, Graham Edwards was the first to realize the potential for a merger between them and the Pears Family would bring. His relationship with Ellis helped them stay in touch, and this led to the initiation of merger talks. Graham Edwards later led the negotiations to one of the most powerful acquisitions in the UK as far as private business owning is concerned. Telereal and Trillium control over 6billion pounds in investments while housing more than 1% of the UK working population. They have over 8000 properties which cover over 86 million feet.
Graham Edwards is a firm believer in partnerships and collaborations, being a crucial aspect of business growth beside innovation and technology. His handling of major companies is attributed to his study of economics at Cambridge University. He is also a affirm believer in giving back to the society which is one of the major pillars of Telereal and Trillium. Graham is undoubtedly a man who has helped transition various sectors of the economy.
