Greystar Europe Welcomes Nathan Goddard As Managing Director of Real Estate

Friday, May 30, 2014

Greystar is pleased to announce that Nathan Goddard has joined the company as Managing Director of Real Estate for Europe. In his new role, Mr. Goddard will oversee current Greystar assets located throughout the U.K., and the company’s expansion both in the U.K. and Europe.

“We are very pleased to have Nathan join our team,” said Andrew Livingstone, Executive Managing Director for Greystar. “Nathan is a proven leader and his background and experience in real estate and global student accommodations will benefit our residents and partners as we expand our presence in the U.K.”

Greystar has a long history and commitment to building strong teams of experienced local real estate leaders in each market it serves. This commitment is underpinned by Greystar’s recent investment in its new London-based office, which is staffed by a growing team of local professionals that will help build Greystar’s property operations and management and investment platforms.

Greystar entered the U.K. market after buying a large portfolio student accommodation assets in October 2013. The portfolio was comprised of 21 assets (6,900 beds) that were originally a part of the Opal Group and sold out of the RBS administration process. On the heels of the initial purchase, Greystar completed on 15th May the purchase of three additional London-based assets (1,100 beds).

“We knew instantly that Nathan would be a great cultural fit for Greystar and that his background provided the experience necessary to accelerate the development of our platform here in the U.K.,” said Brett Lashley, Managing Director for Greystar, “I look forward to partnering with him as we grow our team and continue to evaluate new acquisition and development opportunities in student accommodation and the private rental sector.”

Prior to joining Greystar, Mr. Goddard established Asset Operating Solutions Ltd., an international consultancy business that provided advisory services to investors, developers, and operators in the U.K. and international student accommodation assets. He also had a successful four-year career with the UNITE Group where he held several different roles
including Sales and Marketing Director, Property Management Director and Group Business Development Director.
