CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICERB.Comm, Dip. Acc, CA (SA)
Greg Rawlins, CEO of Reitway Global, qualified as a CA (SA) at Deloitte’s in 1984, before leaving the profession to embark on a career in the Information Technology industry. This was followed by a move in 1998 into the investment and property arena. Greg gained exposure to investment finance and asset management whilst being the CEO of a mid-sized investment company.
However, commercial property which started out as an attraction became a passion. He left investment management in 2003 to focus on his own commercial property portfolio, but the ultimate goal was to develop a global listed property investment methodology.
In early 2009 the asset management division of a bank provided an opportunity to publicly test the performance of the investment strategy. The result was the best performance of a global listed property fund over a three year period.
The prospect of creating a company specializing in the management of global listed property portfolios presented itself in 2012. This was the birth of Reitway Global with Greg being the founding shareholder.
