At this year’s PROPS Awards, Ray Palmer, Chairman of Fiera Real Estate UK, is to be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his outstanding contribution to the industry.
Ray has been one of the most active figures in the real estate sector over the past five decades. He started his real estate career in his early twenties, when he became a Founding Partner of Lambert Smith Hampton, which he is renowned for selling three times and buying it back twice. In 1992, Ray went onto form Palmer Capital (now Fiera Real Estate UK) and, for the next 30 years, Ray would be responsible for backing and mentoring the Property Companies that make up our unique Operating Network. Ray is the Chairman of each of our eight Operating Partners, and also takes particular responsibility for Fiera Real Estate UK’s balance sheet investments.
In 2019, alongside the other directors, Ray went on to sell 80% of Palmer Capital to the real estate arm of Canadian Asset Manager, Fiera Capital, commencing the next chapter of the business: when Palmer Capital became Fiera Real Estate UK. Ray has achieved a considerable amount over the past 50+ years, and has certainly made a name for himself as one of the industry’s most active and dedicated professionals.
Ray, commented: “I am honoured to be recognised with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 PROPS Awards and I am looking forward to celebrating this moment on the 10th May at the award ceremony. I am humbled to receive this honour and to be in the company of such an illustrious group of British property icons.”
