Graham Edwards: Taking Telereal Trillium to New Heights

Advertising, CEO, Real Estate Providers

Graham Edwards is a Telereal veteran. He has risen through the ranks of the company to become one of its senior-most leaders. The recent leadership shakeup at Telereal Trillium announced in April 2018 saw him rise to the apex of the company’s leadership. He was promoted to serve as the chairman of the company. His position as the company’s chief executive officer was taken over by Russell Gurnhill who vacated his joint managing director position with Adam Dakin. Mr. Adkin, who was also the company’s joint managing director, was also promoted. The leadership restructuring will see him serve as Telereal Trillium’s managing director.

 

Aimed at realigning and reprioritizing the company’s resources and goals, the announced restructuring did not affect Graeme Hunter’s role as the company’s property director. Michael Hackenbroch will also retain his finance director position. The newly appointed chairman believes that the new changes will ensure that the company cements its place as one of the leading real estate property developers and managers in the United Kingdom. He also believes that the leadership restructuring at the London-based company will ensure that it better serves the interests of stakeholders.

Tough Negotiations Put Desiree Perez on the Global Entertainment Map

CEO

The global entertainment industry has always been dominated by men but the changing times have recently been reflected in the creation of a list of the most influential female executives in the sector. One name listed which was completely expected was that of multisector executive, Desiree Perez who has grown into her position at Roc Nation after spending two decades leading the business side of the career of rapper, Jay-Z; it is impossible to discuss the success achieved by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter without giving a large amount of credit to Desiree Perez.

As a business leader, Desiree Perez has become the go-to executive for Roc Nation when they are looking to develop new products or negotiate contracts. Perez has built a career on her reputation for being a tough negotiator responsible for deals at Roc Nation totaling more than $500 million with various well-known partners. Among the major deals negotiated by Desiree Perez is the $100 million contract signed with Live Nation to form the label in 2008 and the renegotiated contract signed between the two parties in 2017 for a reported $200 million.

The many responsibilities undertaken by Desiree Perez have allowed her to become one of the leading figures in the unique management model employed at Roc Nation where different executives can work across a range of projects within the business. Not only has the executive become the President and strategy head at the newly formed talent agency, Roc Nation Sports but she has also been working to relaunch the Tidal streaming platform through a $200 million partnership with Sprint. Perez even provides her own playlists featuring up and coming Roc Nation artists for Tidal designed to showcase the next level of talent coming through the ranks of this much-respected record label and entertainment giant.
