Organisational Structure

RREF is run by an experienced Board of Trustees consisting of both senior industry figures (Reading graduates) and senior academics and management from the University.

The Board of Trustees is supported by the Events and Development Committees. There is also a special alumni group for our graduates of the past decade called RG10 which is run by a committee of engaged alumni. These committees help to ensure that there is a thriving and energetic relationship between all the stakeholders.

RREF is based within the Henley Business School and runs from the Whiteknights campus at the University of Reading. The team works closely with staff within the School of Real Estate & Planning, the Henley Business School and the Campaigns and Supporter Engagement Office, as well as the external committees.
