Ed Sheeran takes control of his pub and £ 26million property empire as he signs as director
ED Sheeran is having a big 2021 not only with a musical comeback, but also playing a more practical role with his £ 26million pub and property empire.
The superstar, who has been on hiatus for 18 months, signed up to perform his new song at TikTok’s UEFA Euro 2020 show this month.
Along with his highly anticipated return, Ed has also stepped up to take more control of some of his side businesses, it can be revealed.
The Shape of You singer has been appointed director of his pub and real estate companies, documents recently filed.
Ed, 30, who hasn’t released an album in nearly two years, is expected to take a more active role in Maverick Properties Limited, which manages £ 26million of its investments.
He was also appointed to Fat Punt Limited and That Dive Bar Portobello Limited, which operate their Bertie Blossoms pub and restaurant in Notting Hill, West London.
Ed, who married in 2019 and became a father last year, has never been on the board of any of the companies leaving sole control to his close advisor and director Stuart Camp.
He is the largest shareholder in all the companies, but records last week show that he has hired as a director of all three companies.
This Dive Bar Portobello Limited recorded a loss of £ 227,000 in 2019, its first year of trading and Fat Punt Limited was £ 620,000 in the red.
The losses are a small drop in the ocean for Sheeran who has made £ 250million from his tours alone in recent years.
The Sun reported last year that Ed owned 27 houses, apartments and commercial properties valued at £ 57million – including his huge estate in Suffolk and a mansion in London where he stays in the capital.
He also owns two properties in central London in Covent Garden and a pair of apartments next to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, also in the capital.
The star is busy preparing for his first gig in nearly two years performing at his beloved football club Ipswich Town for the TikTok UEFA Euro 2020 show on June 25.
The concert comes after The Sun revealed that Ed has signed a deal to become the face of the video app.
