Lawrence Hutchings takes over as chief executive

Lawrence Hutchings has started as chief executive at Capital & Regional replacing Hugh Scott-Barrett, who becomes non-executive chairman following the retirement of John Clare.

Hutchings, who was director of European retail property at Henderson Global Investors and managing director of UK retail at Hammerson before spending the last four years at Blackstone in Australia, said: “I am looking forward to getting going in my new role and to gaining a deeper understanding of the business together with the many opportunities I believe the portfolio holds, to deliver further value for shareholders.”

Hugh Scott-Barrett added: “I have every confidence in handing the reins over to Lawrence at this stage in the company’s growth. His skillset and expertise in the retail property sector will be invaluable to its future development.”
