In 2001 the U.K. company Telereal was created as a joint venture between the companies Trillium and Pears, for the purchase of the British Telecom property securities. Facilitating the creation of Telereal was Graham Edwards who at the time was the CIO of Talisman Global Asset. Graham Edwards then stepped into the head of the new venture as the first CEO and he began guiding Telereal with focus.
The Telereal venture was an immediate success, largely due to Graham Edward’s Three Focuses: The focus of long-term relationships with clients, the focus on facility management and property strategy and the focus on pursuing large-scale capital transactions. The clarity of the corporate direction has enabled the Telereal team to concentrate energy upon the goals of the company, avoiding wasted energy and fruitless action (Askreporter).
In 2009 Graham Edwards demonstrated the strength of this three focuses, when Telereal acted upon the third focus, pursuing large-scale capital transactions, when, with smooth precision, merged with the company Trillium, and created Telereal Trillium, the U.K.’s largest, privately owned property management company. Reiterating CEO Graham Edwards commitment to focus, he made a team dedicated to the merger process, giving the project the resources and focus required to complete such a large merger (http://positivethefacts.com/2018/04/graham-edwards-housing-chairman/).
Since the merger, Graham Edwards has kept the Telereal Trillium spotlight on the first and second focus and has maintained and managed the property for some of the U.K.’s trusted companies such as Barclays, BT and Royal Mail. This dedication and goal centered focus has allowed the Telereal Trillium Corporation to gain a portfolio of £ 6 billion and over 86 million square feet of property, providing the work spaces of many U.K. workers.
By continuing to keep the Telereal Trillium team focused upon its goals, Graham Edwards will continue to foster the relationships with clients, their needs and the management of their property and the U.K.’s largest, private property management company will continue to grow.
