as General Manager Property

August 2015


Trust Management has appointed Patrick O’Reilly, former General Manager of DNZ Property Fund, as its new General Manager Property.


With over 20 years of senior leadership experience in the property industry, Patrick is a proven commercial manager who has delivered exceptional results within listed and private entities, bringing a strategic approach to every element of his role.


Grant Hope, Chief Executive of Trust Management, says Patrick’s appointment will further strengthen Trust Managements  position as an industry leading property portfolio manager.


“Patrick has established a solid reputation throughout the New Zealand property industry as an astute leader and commercial manager, who adds value in every situation and delivers outstanding results for clients. We currently advise on, or manage, over $850m of client assets, so Patrick’s ability to develop results-focused options and deliver effective implementation is ideal for our clients.

“In his role as Acting Chief Executive of DNZ, Patrick took the organisation through a time of transition as a new CEO was appointed, showing he possess the leadership skills, tact and relationship-building talents that are so critical in this buoyant property and investment industry.


“Patrick has an adept understanding of the commercial requirements needed to meet client expectations, and as a service provider for many of New Zealand’s charitable and not-for-profit organisations, our role is to provide astute investment advice which takes our clients’ unique needs and objectives into account.


“Our team is proud to welcome Patrick on board, and we all look forward to Trust Management exceeding the industry’s expectations with him at the helm.”


Patrick’s appointment comes just months after Trust Management won the RICS Fund Management Team of the Year Award for 2015.
