U+I is pleased to announce the appointment of Jamie Christmas as Chief Financial Officer

Jamie will join the board of U+I on 17 May 2021 as an Executive Director and assume the role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) on 19 June 2021 when Marcus Shepherd steps down from the board and his current position as Chief Financial and Operating Officer.

Jamie has over seventeen years’ experience in the real estate, private equity and financial services sectors, most recently as CFO of RCL Partners, a large family office with international investments across real estate and private equity. Prior to this, he was CFO at global real estate investment and asset management firm Round Hill Capital and has held senior positions at Coller Capital, CBRE Global Investors and DTZ Holdings plc after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant at KPMG. 

Richard Upton, Chief Executive of U+I, said: “Jamie joins U+I at an exciting time for the Group as we seek to capitalise on opportunities created by structural changes in behaviours from the Covid-19 pandemic and supportive Government economic recovery policies. His fresh energy and extensive expertise in the real estate sector will be enormously valuable as we present our forward-looking strategy on 26 May 2021 to deliver exceptional, sustainable regeneration for our communities, our partners, and increasingly value-added returns for our shareholders.”

Jamie Christmas said: “Now is a pivotal moment for U+I as it simplifies and refocuses its business. U+I has a distinctive market position and exciting schemes that are more relevant now than ever before. I am looking forward to joining the Group and working with Richard and the team in the execution of the regeneration strategy.”
