A chartered surveyor and graduate of the University of Reading, my first major role in property was as director of the property services group Nelson Bakewell. Later, I took on the role of Property Director at Great Portland Estates, before joining Landsec as Managing Director of the London Portfolio in 2010. I became Chief Executive two years later.
In the past I’ve been a director of the New West End Company and Chairman of the Westminster Property Association. I’m currently a director of the European Public Real Estate Association and also of the British Property Federation and will become its President for 12 months in July 2018.
In life outside Landsec, I'm also a trustee of the Natural History Museum.
