British Land announces that Lucinda Bell, Chief Financial Officer, has informed the Board of her intention to stand down from the Board and leave the Company on 4 April 2018. Lucinda was appointed to the Board in March 2011, becoming Chief Financial Officer in May 2011. The Company will now commence a search for a successor and will make an announcement in due course.
Chris Grigg, Chief Executive, said: “We wish Lucinda well for the future and thank her for her significant contribution to the Company over her time at British Land. As CFO she has been instrumental in strengthening the balance sheet and reorganising our finances so we have a strong platform for the future. I am pleased that she will continue to play an active role as we prepare an orderly handover to her successor.”
Lucinda Bell said: “After a long career with British Land including the last six years as CFO, I have decided to step down and leave next year. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to contribute to the success of British Land as it has transitioned into a modern, strategically focussed REIT. I've thoroughly enjoyed working for such an exceptional company and with so many talented people".
