As a PWC-qualified chartered accountant, Helen brings a depth of finance experience across accountancy, investment management, private banking and audit. Helen joins Melburg from her previous roles as a private client fund manager at Schroders where she spent 10 years managing a c. £350 million portfolio of assets on behalf of private clients, trusts and charities across all asset classes and most recently as Director of Finance at Succession Capital. Helen will have overall responsibility for finance and oversee all aspects of financial risk and reporting, succeeding former Melburg CFO, David Brown, who will continue to play a supporting role at Melburg as a Senior Advisor.
Adding further support to the businesses’ expansion, Lucy Marvin joins the Melburg team as an Executive Assistant.
Melburg’s investment and development expertise have seen the business grow significantly with £800 million of predominantly off-market transactions over the previous 36 months. The three new appointments follow several off-market Industrial, office and land transactions by Melburg underpinning its appetite to discreetly accelerate its value-add investment activity within the UK market.
Melburg also upgraded and relocated its offices to a much larger space within Mayfair’s Shepherds Market in the last month to facilitate its continued growth.
A spokesperson at Melburg commented; “Each new team member brings expertise and experience that will enable the business to continue its significant outperformance and growth trajectory”.
Helen Blair commented; “Melburg’s ambition and entrepreneurial approach, evidenced by its rapid growth since inception, attracted me to the role. It’s an exciting time to join the business as it enters the next phase of growth, following a standout few years of establishing itself as a key player in the UK real estate investment market.”
Greg Meller commented; “I am thrilled to be joining the Melburg team and looking forward to becoming a key part of such a vibrant and highly respected business. The fantastic track record of making proactive, decisive moves in the market speaks for itself and I hope to bring my experience and energy to further Melburg’s efforts in acquiring more real estate assets in the near future.”
