Pat will bring his extensive background, including a detailed understanding of tax, financing, and risk management to Greenman and is going to use those competencies to monitor and review financial information and ensure that financial controls and systems of risk management are robust.
Johnnie Wilkinson, CEO of Greenman, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Pat to Greenman. His unparalleled experience gained from operating at the highest level in the financial services sector and risk management will be of huge support to Greenman and my colleagues as we continue to grow our expertise and services. The successful management of grocery anchored retail assets in the future will require fund managers to harness a range of emerging technologies that ensure the sustainability of the underlying assets while ensuring the space also meets the rapidly evolving operating requirements of the sophisticated supermarket occupiers.”
Pat Cullen, non-executive director at Greenman, added: “I’m looking forward to working with Greenman. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of such an entrepreneurial team that has built an outstanding track record of delivering for investors on its core grocery anchored real estate investment offering.”
