Yemi Edun listed among Britain Most Influential Black People

Nigerian-born London property expert and acquisition agent, Yemi Edun, was Tuesday named among one of the UK’s Most Influential Black People in The Powerlist 2021.

Regarded as one of the foremost experts in his sector, Edun, who is Founder/CEO of Daniel Ford & Co and Daniel Ford International, is the first person from the industry to be recognised in the prestigious list.

The annual Powerlist recognises the contributions of people of African, African Caribbean and African-American heritage in Britain, across a range of industries including business, politics, technology and science.

A delighted Edun told Vanguard in a telephone interview: “I am honoured and humbled to be included on The Powerlist 2021 and recognised for my work in the property industry.

“All the men and women on the list are truly inspiring and I feel blessed to be named among them.

“I am incredibly passionate about working in property and I hope this recognition will inspire other young people to consider a career in the industry.” Vanguard gathered that Daniel Ford grew from a portfolio of less than 10 properties to more than 600 in Central London alone.

Daniel Ford International, for example, has, over the years, been responsible for over £650m in property transactions and registered some of London market’s largest transactions during the financial crisis.

The company has become one of London’s leading property acquisition consultancies and won several awards including The Times Letting Agency Awards for Property Management Agency of the Year 2012.
