Neil Young is investment chair at consultancy firm Young. He was previously chief executive at Get Living, a pioneer in build to rent, and started his career working in the hospitality industry with Tui and British Airways.
Not many people, especially in real estate, get the chance to be a pioneer in a sector (build to rent) and be chief executive of the market leader (Get Living). I feel very fortunate that for the last decade or so I’ve done this and been able to innovate, challenge the norm and be a little contrary along the way.
I’m not one to just settle, so once again am looking for innovation. I’ve reset up my business Young to deliver placemade returns by creating asset backed investment partnerships in places where people live, stay or spend time.
