The Thackeray Estate, the property development and asset management business, has appointed David Owens, as Projects Manager, and Giles Hoare, as Portfolio Manager, to oversee the company’s development and project delivery.

Owens has 20 years of project management experience and joins from Mace Green, where he was a director responsible for more than 50 redevelopments.

Prior to Mace Green, he worked for Property and Building Consultancy where he project managed a range of high-end residential and office projects worth more than £50m. He was formerly the Head of Capital Projects at City University London where he delivered a phased capital programme worth £150m.

Hoare will be joining in April from London & Cambridge Properties where he was responsible for a mixed-use portfolio of circa 35 assets across the UK worth more than £80m. He is a qualified Chartered Surveyor who has experience in strategic development, asset management and acquisitions. Previously he has held a variety of roles at Cushman and Wakefield.

The Thackeray Estate has sites in the City of London, South and West London and Reading.

It said it is embarking on a £100m expansion plan, and is seeking to acquire further mixed-use property assets in London and the South East. 

Charles Thompson, Director at The Thackeray Estate, said: “We are delighted to welcome both David and Giles to The Thackeray Estate. David has a long and strong track record of delivering retail, residential and office developments and is an ideal fit with our business model who will help support us to deliver on our £100m expansion plan. Giles will also be a key member of our management team as The Thackeray Estate continues to ambitiously grow its portfolio of properties over the coming months and years.”

David Owens said: “I am thrilled to be joining The Thackeray Estate which is at a very exciting stage in its development. The Thackeray Estate has an excellent track record of regenerating difficult developments, revitalising and preserving buildings with a rich heritage and turning them into places where communities can prosper. I look forward to working with The Thackeray Estate team to support the delivery of the Company’s growth plan.”
