He built this practice by working with some of the major Banks, Fund Managers and Developers during the early 1990’s. When he and Richard Stubley formed Hamilton Partners in 1995, Greg’s exclusive focus became Property. Over the last 15 years he has continued to expand the firm’s profile by working across all property sectors at senior executive level.
