What is your role at Hungerford Properties?

I am the head of our Business Development team.

What are the type of projects you are working on?

I primarily focus on transaction execution and ongoing stewardship of our joint venture and partnership relationships, as well as our strategic growth initiatives.

What is your favourite part of your job?

I come from a transactions background and enjoy the excitement of a deal! I also enjoy the wide variety of projects and range of individuals that I am fortunate to deal with on a daily basis, both internally and externally.

What is it like working on the Business Development team?

We are a group of high performers and high achievers and the environment is fast paced, varied and exciting.

What makes Hungerford different from other developers?

Our rigour. We have amazing attention to detail in everything that we do.

What is the project you are most proud of?

That’s a very tough question. I am going to sit on the fence on this one and say that I think all of our projects have unique attributes that I am proud of.

What are for you, the right qualities to work in Business Development?

Having a transactions background definitely helps, as does the ability to be able to think critically, and approach opportunities in a creative, commercial, and strategic manner.

Tell us about one of the Hungerford Properties' value and how you are living it?

One of our key values is Community, and this value is especially important to me. I am involved in a number of community focused endeavours, in particular as a youth soccer coach. Both of my kids are active in the sport and I really enjoy being involved in that facet of their lives.
