Outgoing John Lewis property director takes non-exec role
Town Centre Securities, the Leeds based property investment, development and car parking company has appointed f Jeremy Collins as non-executive director.
Collins has significant retail property development and management experience gained over the last 35 years, and TCS will be his first non-executive role as he embarks on a new portfolio career in 2018. He is stepping down as property director at John after almost 15 year during which the department store group’s estate grew from 24 shops to 51.
He was previously head of retail and project director at Lend Lease between 1998 and 2003, when he led the development of Touchwood in Solihull, and is a past president of the British Council of Shopping Centres.
Edward Ziff, chairman and chief executive of TCS, said: “Jeremy’s appointment continues our board succession planning with three new non-executive directors, a new executive director and a new finance director appointed over the last three years, adding the additional skills and experience necessary to manage an ambitious real estate business.”
