Jace Tyrrell is leaving New West End Company after 10 years to help regenerate parts of Westminster and the City
Tyrrell has been appointed as executive director of Westminster and City’s joint Property Associations, which own a combined portfolio of more than £20bn, and represent more than 350 members.
Tyrrell will formally take up the role in autumn following Paul Houston’s retirement from running both organisations for the last 10 years. He has been charged with bringing together property owners, developers, occupiers and advisers into a collective voice to inform the policy makers and drive the economic prosperity of the areas.
Tyrrell has been director of communications of NWEC since 2008, although he has worked at the not-for-profit business for a decade.
President of City Property Association Ann Minogue said: “The City is the world’s leading financial centre but faces a number of future challenges including regeneration of the physical environment, its transport links, utility provision, planning, Right to Light and other legal issues. Jace will continue the Associations’ work with the City Corporation to address these issues to ensure the City’s future.”
