Anna Holburn: Biography


Project Title: DREI SCHWESTERN (Three Sisters)

Coming from real estate investment brokering to film production Anna brings to Echo Art Films financial investment expertise, negotiating skills, solid contacts with a wide range of investment bodies, and an ability to seal contracts and deliver on financial commitments. She founded Rhodius Partners investment brokers in June 2005, prior to which she worked at an established finance broker. Anna has been active in the commercial real estate market for 9 years. During her career, she has been involved in financing some €8bn of transactions and has established excellent relationships with a wide network of investors and financing institutions across Europe as well as in India, the Middle East and Israel. Anna has been involved in a number of landmark transactions, including one of the first agented CMBS transactions in the UK and the first fully cross-collateralised cross-border transaction completed in the European market.

A personal interest in film and theatre lead her to form Echo Art Films with the intention of putting her wide-ranging expertise and enthusiasm to actively facilitating and participating in the generation of high-quality, thought provoking, ground-breaking drama.
