Tributes have been paid to Peter Lewin, founder and former chairman of property firm Real Estate Investors after he passed away peacefully last Friday.
Mr Lewin formed Birmingham-based Real Estate Investors in 2004 and it was listed on AIM in the same year. He was chief executive until 2007, when he became chairman, a role he held until 2010.
He remained a non-executive director until retiring early this year.
Paul Bassi, chief executive of Real Estate Investors, said: “On behalf of the Board and everyone at Real Estate Investors, I would like to extend our condolences to Peter’s wife, Michelle and to their family.
“Peter was unstinting in his commitment to the company and his wise counsel was always of the highest standard.
"He will be missed.”
Real Estate Investors plc is Birmingham’s only quoted property investment company.
