HB Reavis appoints new chief executive

HB Reavis has appointed Steven Skinner as its new UK chief executive, a year after the departure of former CEO Tomas Jurdak.

Deputy group CEO Radim Rimanek oversaw the UK business on an interim basis while the firm sought a successor for Mr Jurdak.

Mr Skinner joined HB Reavis in April 2017 as the firm’s transactional director where he was responsible for UK acquisitions, leasing, financing, asset management and marketing.

Prior to joining the developer, he spent four years at BNP Paribas Real Estate in three roles all related to London property investment.

This included running the company’s West End office for three years, where he managed a team of nearly 100 staff and held overall responsibility for investment, development, leasing, retail and professional services.

Mr Skinner will be responsible for delivering HB Reavis’ current UK, portfolio including a 138,000 sq ft mixed-use development above the new Farringdon Crossrail station and its £600m Elizabeth House Waterloo project.

Commenting on Mr Skinner’s appointment, Mr Rimanek said: “Since joining HB Reavis, Steven has contributed to the significant growth of our business in the UK; he has been a passionate ambassador of our strategy to deliver remarkable experiences.”

Shortly after Mr Jurdak’s departure in 2017, CN revealed head of construction Paul Neto had also left the business less than a year after he joined from Vinci.

In June, HB Reavis poached Argent’s head of construction Joe Martin to replace Mr Neto.
