Telereal Trillium prides itself on being one of the largest, private companies in the UK today. The company’s great reach and power to this day are as a result of its dedicated staff and the executive. The company has for long been involved in the charitable giving. Looking at this, its successes along with its philanthropic deeds together points to the topmost head of this organization, Mr. Graham Edward. His impact on Telereal Trillium cannot be understated.
In 2003, Telereal Trillium’s founded the Donation Marching Scheme which is now ranked among the company’s largest and the most successful initiatives. The Donation Marching Schemes allows the company’s employee to donate money to whatever charity they feel like, then, Telereal Trillium marches the donated amount to the initiative’s maximum FastTrack. The maximum is a show of the company’s involvement in the philanthropic giving. Initially, when this scheme was starting the firm set its maximum to £500, however, today, Telereal Trillium ensures that it matches its worker’s contributions to maximums of £2,500.
The rate of increase in donation matching is as a result of the company’s growth under the watch of Mr. Graham Edwards. When he first assumed the role of the firm’s CEO back in 2001 when the company had undergone amalgamation, the CEO let the company through many growth stages, large-scale transactions as well as numerous acquisitions. An example of a notable transaction that Mr. Graham Edward presided over was in 2007 where he led the company to acquire a property, that at the time was being seized by the Royal Bank of Scotland. The property was worth £750 million. The transaction deal to acquire it was done with Prupim, through the sale and leaseback contract which finally resulted in to fully acquiring that property.
Having the title of a CEO comes with its fair share of responsibilities. One must remain focused on effective running a firm and making wise financial decisions. Through it all, Mr. Graham Edward has successfully managed to do this. Apart from driving the company to realize huge successes, Mr. Graham has also guided it through its philosophy of giving back to the society through charitable deeds such as charity matching, payroll giving scheme and also fundraising.
