RealFoundations Opens Chennai Office


February 2015 | Chennai, India - RealFoundations ('RF'), a global professional services firm focused on helping real estate companies run better, opened an office in Chennai late last year. RealFoundations’ clients include some of the largest developers, owner/operators, homebuilders, service providers, institutional investors and corporate occupiers in the world. The largest across its nine (9) global locations, the Chennai office will offer accounting, data, energy, lease, and technology services. RF chose Chennai to access the impressive managerial talent in real estate operations and some of the best universities in India. The 29,000 square feet state-of-the-art facility, located at Arcot Road, Saligramam, is one of the premier office buildings in the city.

“There are a growing number of real estate firms interested in having us assume middle and back office functions. Our Chennai office allows RF to deliver a broader set of services to our clients,” said Mark Callin, Executive Managing Director at RealFoundations.

Now with over 250 client-serving professionals, the firm was founded 15 years ago by former partners of Ernst & Young, in recognition of the real estate industry’s need for dedicated services delivered by professionals knowledgeable in the field. The management team, with backgrounds in real estate-focused management consulting from Kenneth Leventhal & Company, worked together for decades prior to the firm’s establishment.

Peter Iras, Director of Global Operations, has over 30 years of experience providing operational leadership to top financial institutions and investment banks, and was the Solutions Architect for RR Donnelly’s Global Financial Management Services Unit. Peter said, “We’ve got a lot more clients coming on board and have been quick to grow the Chennai-based team.”
