Richard’s multi-sector experience, and previous roles leading our global investor relations team, where he directly led the raising of global capital for pooled funds, new investor partnerships and joint ventures and also led the highly successful Direct business, have given him a unique insight into the needs of customers. This is in addition to his 25+ years’ experience in real-estate funds management, real-estate finance, accounting and risk management.
Now responsible for heading the industrial business, Richard is looking to grow it with our investor and tenant-customer base, while ensuring the team has the opportunity to grow their individual careers along the way.
Driven by an ethos of creating better futures’, Richard never loses sight of why we’re here, putting this purpose into action every day – meeting with individual customers and businesses to define their requirements, and how to shape the best solution. He believes the company’s willingness to partner with investors across sectors – to live their aspirations and collaborate internally to make it happen – is one of the many ways that sets Charter Hall apart.
In the long-term, Richard’s goal is for funds to remain resilient through cycles so that those invested have greater financial security and enjoy the future they’ve worked so hard for. A positive legacy of care, experience and clear purpose.
A strong believer in giving back, as a member of the NSW Board of Advisers for the Property Industry Foundation, Richard helps steer the industry to provide financial and in-kind support to charities making a tangible difference to the lives of at-risk and homeless young people.
