St Modwen Developments Ltd, the principal subsidiary of St Modwen Properties PLC, has appointed John Dodds BSc, FRICS, as its Midlands Regional Director. He is expected to take up the position in August, and will also be responsible for St Modwen’s investment operations in the region.
Mr Dodds has worked for Hammerson plc for the past 20 years and is currently UK Retail Director, a director of the Birmingham Alliance and has been specifically responsible for leading the redevelopment of the new Bull Ring.
Mr Anthony Glossop, Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive of St Modwen, said: “This is a new and important position within St Modwen. As we have grown, we have been creating a series of regional and support service teams, each led by an experienced professional manager to ensure that the previous flat management structure did not hold up our progress. This appointment completes that process.
“We are delighted that John Dodds has agreed to join us. He has a wealth of relevant experience to bring to the task and, in particular, his involvement in the Birmingham Alliance and its major regeneration projects, working closely with the City Council is entirely in line with our own strategy.”
