Evolving and constantly growing
Founded in 2000, EG has grown rapidly, constantly evolving to find better ways to unlock value for investors as a real estate investment firm for the property industry.
EG, led by Chairman Michael Easson and CEO Adam Geha, began with an initial focus on achieving highest and best use for land through rezoning. This experience coupled with the unique ability to foresee growth potential, resulted in the launch of funds management services in 2004. EG now has a variety of funds, mandates and joint ventures with $5.1 billion in assets under management and a strong development pipeline of $3.9 billion.
EG Property Advisory, led by Shane Geha, continues to advise on some of the most difficult and high-profile rezoning opportunities in Australia, achieving ‘highest and best use’ for clients property portfolios.
