Former head of property at Schroders has also joined the board

Old Oak

The managing director of investment management at Lendlease has been appointed to the board of the group redeveloping Old Oak in west London.

Victoria Quinlain is being joined on the board by former Schroders head of property William Hill who spent over 28 years at the investment manager before leaving to set up his consultancy five years ago.

London mayor Sadiq Khan approved the recommendations made by the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation’s chair Liz Peace.

The appointments come after Victoria Hills stepped down as chief executive from the group to take up the chief executive role at the Royal Town Planning Institute.

OPDC is the local planning authority for the 650 ha Old Oak site which will see more than 25,000 homes built over the next 30 years, as well as new Crossrail and HS2 stations. 

There are almost 11,000 housing units in the planning system at Old Oak. Work on the first 600 homes on the Oaklands site at Old Oak began in September.
