Please tell us about your career before InfraRed

I have 10 years’ experience in Real Estate working at a variety of organisations but most recently at Tesco where I spent six years working in their Property team. I managed the team responsible for their Joint Venture retail portfolios which included Tesco stores, shopping centres and retail parks. I joined InfraRed in April 2018 as a UK Asset Manager in the Real Estate team.

Which aspects appealed to you about our organisation?

There were many aspects that appealed to me prior to joining InfraRed but the things that stand out are:

  • Its track record as an investment manager and investor
  • Its drive to transform real estate assets to create long term value for investors and end users not just financially but also through regeneration projects and community work
  • Its focus on infrastructure as well as real estate and the opportunity to broaden my experience across the sectors

What do you enjoy most about working here?

It's people! The team at InfraRed are incredibly welcoming and supportive and have certainly made my first six months very enjoyable. There is also a strong will within the business to invest in its employees and they have recently supported my transition to flexible working to enable me to better balance my life as an asset manager and a mum of two small children.        

What advice would you give to others considering a role here?

InfraRed is forward thinking and innovative in its approach, so I would advise anyone wanting to join the business to be ready for a challenge, to not be afraid to offer new ideas and to think ‘outside the box’.    

Fast facts about you

I am married to Tom, have two small children and we live in St Albans. I love travelling and have visited many parts of the world already with India, Canada and Africa next on the list. In my spare time I like to swim, go walking and to see family and friends.
