UK CEO Tomas Jurdak has announced he is leaving HB Reavis this summer after four years heading up the group in the UK.
In a statement, the company said Jurdak was leaving “to explore new opportunities” and will be replaced on an interim basis by Radim Rimanek, the board director of HB Reavis Group.
Rimanek has been responsible for overseeing the business run by Jurdak since its inception four years ago and has seen it grow significantly in recent months as it secured a £47m loan for the full refurbishment and modernisation of 61 Southwark Street, a £127m loan for its flagship office building 33 Central in London as well as the acquisition of a site on London’s South Bank known as One Waterloo with planning permission for 945,000 sq ft of development.
He will be supported by the UK senior team including transactional director Steven Skinner, development director Kiran Pawar and head of strategic projects Jan Vesely.
A spokesperson for HB Reavis said: “In a relatively short time since entering the London market, HB Reavis has grown from a developer unknown firm in the UK into a firmly established real estate player in the London office market. Currently, HB Reavis has four major development projects underway or nearing completion, including our latest addition, Elizabeth House. We are very thankful to Tomas for his key role in the remarkable success of the business to-date and we wish him every success for the future.”
