Get Living owners strengthen Supervisory Board with appointment of Jeremy Helsby as Chairman

February 3, 2020

03 February 2020: The joint venture partnership behind Get Living, the UK’s most experienced and progressive build to rent operator of residential neighbourhoods, today announced that Jeremy Helsby, former Chief Executive of Savills, has joined its Supervisory Board as Non-Executive Chairman.

In his new role, Jeremy‘s responsibilities will see him providing strategic advice and support for Get Living as it continues to deliver on its ambitious growth plans. Jeremy joins with immensely deep real estate and operational expertise gained from his 40 year tenure at Savills, 11 years of which were spent as Chief Executive, prior to his retirement in 2019.

The joint venture partnership behind Get Living comprises the following significant investors: Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company, DOOR (Oxford Properties and Delancey’s flagship client fund, DV4) and the Dutch pension fund asset manager, APG. The partnership’s ambition is to remain the leading provider in the delivery of professionally managed homes in London and other major UK cities over the next few years, leading the charge for simple and straightforward renting.

Get Living’s residential neighbourhoods portfolio comprises 3,000 homes in London and Manchester; at East Village on the Olympic Park in Stratford, Elephant Central in Elephant and Castle and the newly opened New Maker Yards in Manchester. These residential-led neighbourhoods sit alongside a development pipeline of more than 5,000 new homes across neighbourhoods in London, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow.

Commenting on his appointment, Jeremy said: “I am excited to join the Supervisory Board at such a key time for the business and the sector, as Get Living continues to grow and lead the build to rent sector, pioneering the way residents in the UK live and rent. Supported by the extensive knowledge of the members of the Supervisory Board, alongside my fresh perspective, I hope to contribute insight which will further strengthen and evolve our market leading management platform ensuring we continue to lead the charge in managing a significant portfolio of operational assets, are building a strong development pipeline and offer exemplary operating capabilities in the UK.”
