Portus Retail offers made-to-measure solutions that reflect the unique context and considerations of every project and are designed to deliver against business objectives over the long term, making them the asset management partner of choice for owners and investors looking for a fresh perspective on their retail property challenge.

Spearheading the leadership team is founder Todd, who has vast experience and an in-depth understanding of the market. He commented on the new brand direction: “Portus Retail offers a true understanding of retail property. In a crowded industry, it is our thinking that sets us apart. Our approach is distinctive, and we are proud of that. What might have worked yesterday, may not today. Our asset management strategies are thoroughly researched, carefully planned, and meticulously executed. We apply a thorough thought process and analysis to every asset before we act, we call it Uncommon Sense.”

Todd brings huge benefits to capital partners wishing to invest in retail property across Europe. Alongside Todd in the leadership team is Wendy Tasker, a retail operations and marketing specialist, having worked in marketing and retail roles across UK, Europe and the Middle East over the past 25 years; also Paul Anderson, an asset management specialist with almost 30 years’ experience in UK, European and Middle East markets.

Todd spoke about the new leadership team: “After four successful years’ operating mainly in continental Europe, we have exciting news around our existing assets and new projects in the pipeline for 2021; there couldn’t be a better time to align a deeper partnership. I am thrilled to be continuing my working relationship with Wendy and Paul, they are both remarkable, forward thinking business professionals, joining me as partners they will aid in driving Portus Retail forward and achieving our business objectives.”
