British Land has appointed Simon Carter as chief financial officer.
Carter is currently CFO at Logicor and prior to that was finance director at Quintain Estates & Development.
Prior to this he spent just over 10 years at British Land in a variety of financial and strategic roles and was a member of the executive committee from 2012.
He succeeds Lucinda Bell who, as previously announced, intended to step down from the board and leave the company on 4 Apr.
British Land said that having now successfully completed the search for a replacement CFO, it had been agreed that she would now step down from her role as a main board director as well as her day-to-day responsibilities as CFO with immediate effect.
It said a team has already been established to manage the transition to a new CFO.
