Treasury Holdings

Experts in developing masterplanned sites from vision to completion, Treasury Holdings delivered many of Ireland’s most valuable commercial schemes. At the height of its success, the company secured planning permission for the 8.5 million sq ft development at Battersea Power Station.

John Ronan was one of two founding shareholders of Treasury Holdings, a development business which he established with Richard Barrett in 1989. Over John’s career with Treasury Holdings, capital totalling €5 billion was raised. At its peak, the company had a development pipeline of 25 million square feet including Battersea Power Station, Spencer Dock Dublin and the HQ Centre in Shanghai; the gross asset value was €4.8 billion.

In 2011, Treasury Holdings secured planning permission for the largest development in London’s history at Battersea Power Station. The ability to achieve buy-in for this 8.5 million square foot scheme demonstrates perseverance, ambition and skill beyond the capability of most developers and underscores John’s strong relationships with prominent UK decision-makers.
