One of the major thing that can define the success and achievements of Graham Edwards is just a look at Telereal Trillium which began from a very humble background to heights that it is for now. This icon of inspiration has spent most of his time and career at this company in making it better with time. Through various acquisitions and positive shifts, the company has grown to become a major property management and consequently a general investment company across the United Kingdom.
The renowned Graham Edwards has always been aspiring to push harder in his professional career. And these ambitions seemed to take ground when he joined Merrill Lynch. His experience here formed a very solid ground in enabling him to execute his duties as the CEO at Telereal Trillium. Previously he had served as the head of finance at the British Telecomholdings Group PLC. He was at the center of the acquisition that led to Telereal which made him be the CEO where he was overseeing more than 6700 properties.
Since the acquisition, the company grew steadily until it hit another jackpot in 2009 where Graham Edwards gained interest and purchased Trillium from Land Securities Group PLC. This was a perfect match for his company and eventually, it was rebranded Telereal Trillium. It is amazing that the company currently watches over 8,000 properties with over 320 staffs and 7000 employees via service partners. This has made it be one of the best private companies across the UK.
In order to keep his staffs motivated, Graham Edwards launched a program in 2003 called Donation Matching Scheme where they raise some money and donate to the poor whilst creating a great bond amongst the employees. The company partnered with St. Mungo’s, LandAir and Tomorrow’s People which are officially recognized charities in the UK. The participation of the employees in the program has grown greatly from 10% to over 40%.
Their starting matching amount was $500 and currently has grown to $2500. The CEO looks forward to seeing half of his employees participating in the Scheme in the coming years which will be a great achievement. It is amazing that some of the employees are donating much more than the set matching amount. There is still great future for Telereal Trillium.
