As a talent expert in the fresh and fast-growing area of BTR, Nick is always looking for transferable skills which will not only compliment alternative asset class sectors but help them excel. Richard Smith, Managing Director of Moda Life Management, is a prime example and the most recent guest on,A New Lease of Life.
Richard Smith is tasked with growing the build-to-rent business – the operational arm of the JV’s £2.5 billion BTR portfolio – and aims to build Moda Life into “a leading serviced living and lifestyle platform”. He is focused on creating a 150-strong team over the next five years. In this episode, Nick explores how Richard plans to onboard off-sector talent successfully, using his own personal experience to ensure not only individuals elevate but the brand as a collective.
With 30 years’ experience in hospitality, Smith has previously held positions at De Vere and Marriott. As brand and operations director at De Vere, he oversaw the community engagement programmes for the portfolio of 22 De Vere hotels and conference centres in the UK.
