Irish Independent - Business Week - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY - Ronald Quin­lan

THERE’S Ir­ish in­ter­est on the in­au­gu­ral ‘ Prop­erty Week Power 100’ — a list of the 100 most inf lu­en­tial in­di­vid­u­als within the UK prop­erty in­dus­try.

Hav­ing as­sessed po­ten­tial can­di­dates on a range of fac­tors in­clud­ing deal­mak­ing prow­ess; fi­nan­cial clout; in­dus­try knowl­edge; po­lit­i­cal power, net­work­ing skills and in­no­va­tion, Prop­er­tyWeek has put Bal­ly­more chief Sean Mul­ryan at 31 on the list, while Rob Tinck­nell, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Bat­tersea Power Sta­tion Development Com­pany se­cures 43rd place.

Sean Mul­ryan’s ci­ta­tion refers to Bal­ly­more as “be­ing one of Europe’s most re­spected res­i­den­tial devel­op­ers” and the owner of “some of the most ex­cit­ing sites around”. Prop­er­tyWeek com­mends Mr Mul­ryan for hav­ing steered Bal­ly­more to fi­nan­cial sta­bil­ity, say­ing: “Late last year, the firm ex­ited Nama af­ter pay­ing back €3.2bn in gross debt, a huge achieve­ment for which Mul­ryan de­serves a lot of credit.”

Hav­ing served as man­ag­ing di­rec­tor for the UK and in­ter­na­tional arm of Bat­tersea Power Sta­tion’s for­mer own­ers, Trea­sury Hold­ings, Rob Tinck­nell is recog­nised for hav­ing landed the big­gest deal of 2016 when Bat­tersea Power Sta­tion Development Com­pany signed up Ap­ple as ten­ants. The 46,500 sq m (500,000 sq ft) deal will see 1,400 of the US tech gi­ant’s em­ploy­ees based at Bat­tersea when it opens in 2021.

Sean Mul­ryan is ranked 31st on the ‘Power 100’
