John Hoyle

Managing Director, Sunbird Asset Finance

John Hoyle established Sunbird Asset Finance in May 2014, paving the way for Sunbird to respond to emerging opportunities in real estate development and finance across East Africa.

He brings regional experience in development of real estate assets in emerging markets from his time with EC Harris and Aldar Sorouh in Abu Dhabi. His approach to project development was honed during his career at Grosvenor and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG).

John started his career as a British Army Officer commanding an armoured infantry platoon in the UK, Germany and Iraq and has lived, worked and travelled extensively in Tanzania since the late 1990's. John holds a BSc (Hons) in Politics from Bristol University and an MBA in Real Estate from the University of Reading.

"Taking a pragmatic view on the African real estate market allows Sunbird to seize, harness and benefit from their opportunities."
