Stephen Lewis named vice chair of Scottish Property Federation
The Scottish Property Federation (SPF) has announced that Stephen Lewis, managing director of HFD Property Group, has been appointed as vice chair with immediate effect.
Stephen has over 25 years’ commercial property experience in both the public and private sectors and in recent years has been responsible for a number of leading office developments across Scotland. In addition to this, he has played a key role in building public and private sector collaboration with both the Glasgow Development Forum and with the Glasgow City Centre Task Force, set up to shape the city’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stephen will support current SPF chair Kevin Robertson, managing director of KR Developments, during his tenure before assuming the role of chair in Spring 2022.
Kevin Robertson, SPF chair, welcomed the appointment: “We are excited to have Stephen on board supporting the work of the Scottish Property Federation. His experience of commercial development across Scotland is unrivalled and he brings first-hand knowledge of net-zero development together with a collaborative skillset.”
Stephen Lewis added: “I am delighted to take on the role of Vice-Chair of the Scottish Property Federation and look forward to working with Kevin and the team.
“As we look to rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic there has never been a more important time for the real estate industry in Scotland – there will be challenges and opportunities presented by the ‘new normal’ and we must address these whilst continuing our move towards a carbon neutral future.
“My career to date has been built on working collaboratively with all parties to achieve our shared goals and I will bring this approach to my role with the SPF.”
