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.
