Build-to-rent investor Atlas Residential has confirmed its appointment of Dominic Martin as director of operations. Martin will oversee the expansion of Atlas Residential UK property management and operations business.
He joins from Westrock, where he was responsible for managing the firm’s private rented sector operations and oversaw the development of rental brand Platform_. Martin is a former member of the government’s PRS taskforce and sits on the Investment Property Forum special interest group for residential investment, the British Property Federation build-to-rent sub-committee, and is chair of the UK Apartment Association’s policy committee. He has also held roles at EC Harris, CBRE and Drivers Jonas.
His responsibilities at Atlas will include co-heading a recently launched partnership with Wildheart Residential Management to provide property management and consultancy services to institutional investors.
Martin said: “It is an exciting time to join Atlas, as we are reaching a tipping point in the evolution of the PRS, where more schemes are coming onto the market and the government has pledged its clearest support yet for build to rent in its housing white paper.”
