Tim Ashby

Group General Counsel and Company Secretary

I’ve spent more than 20 years gaining legal, compliance and commercial experience across different businesses and sectors, both in the UK and overseas. 

I started my career in private practice at Dentons, specialising in commercial law. I went on to work at Yum Brands – a company that owns the KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brands – as Region Counsel for Europe and Africa. I also held the position of Senior International Counsel at PepsiCo, working in different businesses in the UK, Eastern Europe and Africa.

After that I spent five years as Group General Counsel and Company Secretary of Mothercare. In 2015 I joined Landsec and have been Group General Counsel and Company Secretary since then.

I lead the Legal, Company Secretarial and Real Estate Information Management teams. As well as advising and supporting the Board and its Committees, I look after the Group’s relationships with external law firms and investor and shareholder bodies. 


Tim is a member of the Executive Committee. He attends all Board, Audit, Nomination, and Remuneration Committee meetings in his capacity as Company Secretary. He also attends meetings of the Investment Committee.
