In 2009 a large merger between two powerful real estate companies took place. One company is called Telereal and the other is Trillium. Graham Edwards who was the chief executive of Telereal played a major part in making this business acquisition happen. The company is now known as Telereal Trillium. Ian Ellis used to be CEO of Trillium. Once the merger went through Graham Edwards became CEO of Telereal Trillium and Ian Ellis became a non-executive director (https://www.propertyweek.com/graham-edwards/2438935.publicprofile?pview=1). They worked together to effectively pool the resources of the two companies and combine them as one.
With the formation of the new company there was plenty of capital on hand to help to achieve the companies goals. Graham Edwards is taking a somewhat conservative approach in running Telereal Trillium. He doesn’t believe in rushing into a deal just for the sake of making it happen. If a deal doesn’t go through then it will simply be because it is the right thing to do and shouldn’t be looked upon as a failure. This is the way that Graham Edwards approaches the business world. He has been this way all along in hes career.
Graham Edwards graduated from Kings College in London and the University of Cambridge. He has used his education to his advantage to obtain positions in many high profile organizations. At one time he was the chief investment officer at Talisman Global Asset Management. He also held important positions at Merrill Lynch and at BTGroup Plc’s property department. Graham Edwards used his business experience at these companies to help him to manage Telereal Trillium. He was able to merge the operations of the two separate companies together to make then a strong single entity.
In order to help the two companies better act as one a team of individuals was assigned this task. A new management team was produced. They were a mix of former management officials from both Telereal and Trillium. The existing clients from both companies were to be held on to and made satisfied. This helped to produce confidence in the new business among existing clients that they serve.
