If you are looking for an expert in London Real Estate, then Graham Edwards is your man. If you are also looking for an individual who has made a spectacular impact, then Graham Edwards is also your man. To say this man is an asset would be a huge understatement.
First of all there is his acumen in the realm of business. Once upon a time, he was the CEO of a Powerhouse real estate company called Telereal (Glassdoors). For many people this would be good enough, but not Graham Edwards. He reached out to Trillium, which was another London real estate powerhouse. Former Trillium chief executive Ian Ellis recalls that Graham Edwards reached out to him almost immediately after his company came out on the market. The two companies signed a 30-year agreement and became the behemoth Telereal Trillium in 2001. Even though the new company had 1 billion in assets, Graham Edwards knew a guided, slow and deliberate approach was in order. His steady leadership has led to several other notable acquisitions, including a 750 million-pound property from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
One of the most remarkable things about Graham Edwards would be that it is not just in business that he thrives. He is also quite the remarkable philanthropist as well. His charitable deeds would include a “donation matching” program that is available for every employee at Telereal Trillium. This donation matching program has seen employee giving improve from just a mere 10% in 2009 to 44% in 2016. Indeed, in the most recent year, the staff at the company donated just over 130,000 pounds to over a hundred different British charities. Telereal Trillium was able to contribute 80,000 more pounds as a matching donation to the cause. There is no question that with Graham Edwards at the helm, Telereal Trillium will not only be a dominant force in London real estate but also hold a positive community influence for many years to come as well.
