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 the President of the British Property Federation.
In life outside Landsec, I'm also a trustee of the Natural History Museum.
