Atrato Group makes two appointments

Atrato Group, the parent company of Atrato Capital, the investment adviser to Supermarket Income REIT, has made two appointments to support its growth plans.

Faye Commander has joined from Liberty Living, the student accommodation company, as a paralegal and Blair Abel has joined from Knight Frank as an Assistant Director, Asset Management.

Commander brings additional capacity to Atrato Group’s legal and governance function, following the appointment of its subsidiary, Atrato Halliwell, as the investment adviser to a newly formed 50:50 joint venture between Supermarket Income REIT and British Airways Pension Trustees Limited. 

Commander previously worked as a paralegal in the in-house legal team at Liberty Living, building the function from its infancy alongside a small team of lawyers.  

Abel, who will be a member of Atrato Group’s supermarket investment team, will focus on the execution of asset management initiatives across the growing portfolio of supermarket properties covered by the company’s investment advisory mandates. She is MICS qualified and a RICS-registered valuer, previously working within the Knight Frank capital markets valuation team. 

Ben Green, Principal at Atrato Group, says: “We are excited to have Blair and Faye on board to expand the capacity of the front-line teams and to provide additional oversight to support the continued growth of the company”.
