UK residential property fund manager – Hearthstone Investments – announces it has appointed ex-Savills Head of PR, Jamie Jago as Non-Executive Director on its board.
Jamie retired from Savills in July 2021 after a 35-year career in PR specialising in residential property; the last 13 of which had been spent at the global property advisor following their acquisition in 2008 of the PR agency, Jago Dean, which she had co-founded in 2002.
‘’Having worked since I was 17, my intention was to take a year’s sabbatical before even thinking about consultancy or new projects. As it was, meeting Cedric within 24 hours of leaving Savills made me change my mind; the impression he made together with the obvious strengths of Hearthstone meant I jumped at the chance to be involved. I look forward to bringing a lifetime’s PR and communications experience to the role and working with this impressive board to continue to grow the business.”Jamie Jago, Non-Executive Director, Hearthstone Investments
In February 2022, Hearthstone Investments announced that its Hearthstone Residential Fund 2 (HRF2) – which launched in November 2020 – was fully invested, and raised a total of £152m. The fund recently acquired a Build to Rent scheme in Derby. Shortly following this, Hearthstone Investments also announced the acquisition of 70 new Build to Rent homes near Fareham in Hampshire.
“Over the past five years Hearthstone Investments’ assets have nearly tripled with now close to £500m of capital committed by a range of institutional and private investors. A strong team both at executive and non-executive level has been and will continue to be at the heart of our growth, investment and client servicing strategy. We are delighted that Jamie joined our board – her experience and expertise will be invaluable to myself and our business over the coming years.”Cedric Bucher CEO, Hearthstone Investments
