Charles Miller, Jones Lang LaSalle's director and head of development of the retail property team, is leaving the firm to join retail developer and investor NewRiver Retail. He will join the board as development director.

NewRiver chief executive David Lockhart said: "I am delighted to welcome Charles to NewRiver's Executive team and he brings with him a wide range of skills and experience that are directly relevant to the company's value creating business model. Having already worked with Charles during his time at both King Sturge and Jones Lang LaSalle, with whom we have an important professional relationship, he has clearly demonstrated that he is an expert in the field of retail regeneration and development. Charles' appointment demonstrates NewRiver's commitment to its active strategy for expansion both in terms of its retail portfolio and corporate structure and we look forward to working with him."
