He has over eleven years' board level experience with listed companies having been Managing Director & Chief Financial Officer of Capital & Counties Properties plc prior to joining SEGRO, and was previously an Executive Director of UBS within the investment bank.

Upon appointment, Soumen will become a member of the Nomination, Audit and Remuneration Committees.
