Changes to Board and Investment Advisor appointments

 

Martin Meech has informed the Board that in order to take up an executive position in the real estate industry, he will not be standing for re-election at the Company's Annual General Meeting ("AGM") in September 2023, following which he will cease to be a Director of the Company.

 

Martin has served on the Board since the Company's IPO in 2017 as the Senior Independent Director. He is Chair of the Management Engagement Committee and is also a member of the Audit and Risk Committee and Sustainability Committee. The Board has already commenced the process using external consultants to find a successor and will announce the revised composition of the Board and the Board Committees in due course.

 

Neil Kirton, Chairman of the Board of Directors commented: "Martin has been a hard-working, respected and valued colleague having served on the Audit and Risk, Management Engagement and more recently the Sustainability Committees. I would like to thank him for all his efforts on our behalf and wish him well for the future."

 

Separately, the Company announces that Simon Hope, currently Non-Executive Director of Warehouse REIT and Executive Chairman of Tilstone Partners, the Company's Investment Advisor, has been appointed Co-Managing Director of Tilstone Partners alongside Andrew Bird.  This follows Simon's move to an executive role at Tilstone Partners.

 

The Company is also pleased to announce that Tilstone Partners has appointed Jo Waddingham to the newly created role of Head of Corporate Affairs, Investor Relations & Sustainability. Jo spent 10 years in Investor Relations roles at British Land, latterly as Investor Relations and Corporate Sustainability Lead, and brings a wealth of experience to the wider Group.
