A chartered accountant by profession, John Ronan, RGRE Principal, has been a leading figure in global real estate for more than 35 years. His primary interest and expertise is the development of prime buildings that yield long-term investment results. Over his career, John has built successful and enduring partnerships with a range of joint venture equity partners, bank lenders and tenants.

RGRE’s intimate market knowledge and relationships with owners, funders and intermediaries provide a unique ability to deliver development scale with quality and speed. The Group has an exceptional track record in all aspects of property development – from purchase and planning to design, build and leasing – particularly for large mixed-use schemes such as Spencer Dock, Central Park, Battersea Power Station and The HQ (Shanghai).

Portfolio Acquisitions

Hermes

In 1997, in a joint venture with GE Capital, RGRE acquired a portfolio of 11 UK properties from Hermes comprising office, industrial and retail assets. After buying the GE Capital share of the portfolio in 2000, we managed, redeveloped and sold all the assets by 2006. The portfolio yielded cash profits of 7X equity over 8 years.

General Accident

This multi-property, mixed-use portfolio acquisition was made in a joint venture with GE Capital and Ex-Lands plc. Over a four year period, the assets were sold at a significant profit.
