Head of Retail quits British Land
Charlie Maudsley, head of retail, leisure and residential at British Land is stepping down as executive director and board member effective from 31 March 2019. Head of offices Tim Roberts is leaving at the same time and both will be replaced by Darren Richards who steps up to the role of head of real estate.
Charlie joined British Land in 2010 and has been on the board since that time. He has led a significant repositioning of the retail portfolio, substantially redefining its customer proposition; acquiring many strategic mixed-use assets and disposing of £2.8bn of off-strategy assets since 2014. He has helped establish retail and leisure as a core part of BL’s mixed-use campus offer and overseen significant operational milestones including the refurbishment of Meadowhall and the formation of a market leading data and insights function.
Maudsley said: “I am very proud of what we have achieved at British Land; the business is set up for a fantastic future and this is the right time for me to find a new opportunity.”
As part of these leadership changes, Sally Jones who joined British Land in 2010 and has been on the executive committee since 2015 will take on an expanded role which includes investment and strategy as well as data and insights and the group’s smart technology initiatives. Emma Cariaga, head of operations, Canada Water and David Lockyer, head of Broadgate Campus will join the executive committee.
