Miles joins 2GBiopower as a Non-Executive Director, bringing his network and experience to assist with site origination, funding and strategy.
Miles is Group Property Director for Miller Turner, one of the UK’s leading developers of energy from waste facilities. Previously Miles was a Director of Savills, a FTSE 250 advisory firm, for nearly 10 years, most recently heading up Transactional Services for their energy business. Previous roles were Head of Development and Head of Operations for Savills Energy & Infrastructure.
Miles is a serial business developer, specialising in creating and supporting new business start-ups from inception, through their early, pre-revenue capital raising stage to their formative delivery and growth phases and ultimately to the structuring of pre and post revenue exits – always with an innovative real estate solution at their core. Whilst in limited instances this can be as straight forward as matching entrepreneurs with great ideas to backers with a reciprocal hunger, more often than not success involves a process of re-imagination. This starts with a deep understanding of value and works back to the development of a business model that drives it – often the sum of a series of parts yet to be defined; delivered through partnerships, collaborations and/ or joint ventures.
Recent mandates range from originating the sites for £1.5 billion of residual waste recovery facilities in the UK, to seeking a funding partner to secure their delivery; the development of Edge datacentres in the UK and a large datacentre campus in Ireland. Miles’ enthusiasm, hunger and network has led to involvement in a vibrant portfolio of work.
Miles studied Marine Technology at Newcastle University and has a Bachelor of Science Honors Degree in Urban Property Surveying from University of Northumbria.
