UK, 03 October: Mapeley, one of the largest commercial landlords in the UK, announces the appointment of Martin Taylor as the firm’s new Head of Investment.
Mr Taylor joins Mapeley from Gerald Eve (formerly Deloitte Real Estate) at an exciting time for the company as it looks to broaden its capabilities, develop new opportunities and grow its already extensive UK-wide portfolio.
Developing and implementing an investment property strategy that underpins Mapeley’s clear and long-term growth ambitions will be central to Mr Taylor’s role. He has had an extensive and impressive career within the property sector working in asset management and development to provide bespoke funding solutions and identify opportunities for a range of investors and developers. He has extensive experience in the London and regional office markets, both of which will be key for the company’s UK wide portfolio.
Prior to being at Gerald Eve, Mr Taylor was at Barwood Developments where he built a strong track record working on large-scale projects. He helped create Barwood’s “Strategic Land Fund” and its “Property Investment Fund”, both of which continue to perform well.
At Mapeley Mr Taylor will bring his expertise, skills and networks together to help the business grow its asset management platform, working alongside CEO Mark Smith and the rest of the leadership team in helping the business achieve its long-term goals.
Mark Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Mapeley Estates Ltd, said:
“We are pleased to welcome Martin to Mapeley. His appointment is a strong statement of intent about broadening our capabilities as we move into a new chapter of growth, both with our current customers and in new opportunities. Martin’s depth of knowledge, expertise and drive will ensure we can capitalise on our current position while working to develop new and exciting opportunities.”
Martin Taylor, Head of Investment, Mapeley Estates Ltd, said:
“Mapeley’s successful track record in owning, developing and servicing an extensive UK property portfolio is a great indicator for future growth. I am therefore delighted to join Mark and the team at Mapeley at such an exciting time in the company’s evolution.”
