Retiring Landsec chief to join board at Taylor Wimpey
Taylor Wimpey has announced today that retiring Land Securities Group chief executive Robert Noel will be appointed as an independent non-executive director with effect from October 1.
Last week, Mr Noel revealed his decision to leave the commercial property developer next year, after spending 10 years with the company and eight as chief executive.
A chartered surveyor with over 30 years’ experience in the property sector, Noel was previously property director of Great Portland Street Estates plc from 2002 to 2009 and was recently the president of the British Property Federation. He is also a trustee of the Natural History Museum.
Taylor Wimpey chairman Kevin Beeston said: “I am very pleased to welcome Rob to the board. Rob has a deep understanding of the property sector and a strong track record of success as the CEO of Landsec, all of which will provide an excellent fit for our board’s current skill set and balance. Rob will be a valuable adviser and contributor to both the board and the Taylor Wimpey business and we all very much look forward to working with him.”
