Double director appointment for Town Centre Securities

Town Centre Securities (TCS) has made two key senior appointments in its property team.

The Leeds-based property investor and car parking operator has promoted Helen Green to Property Director. Craig Burrow, meanwhile, has joined the company as Development Director.

Mr Burrow joins from his previous role as Director of Leeds at Bruntwood. He brings a wealth of experience in managing high-profile acquisitions, investments and redevelopments including the delivery of Platform, 3 Sovereign Square and 100 Wellington Street.

Prior, he was an associate director at DTZ in Leeds and is known for his long-standing positions on boards, committees and steering groups including Yorkshire Property Charitable Trust, Leeds Chamber of Commerce, East Street Arts, Crypt Factor and Yorkshire Property Charity Football.

His new role will see his 20 years’ experience in the office market progress TCS’s development pipeline including the 3.5 acre Whitehall Riverside project in Leeds and the 12.5 acre Piccadilly Basin scheme in Manchester.

The promotion of Ms Green to Property Director comes after 15 successful years with the business, where she delivered the phased development, regeneration, and growth of TCS’s largest single asset, the 1 million sq ft mixed-use Merrion Centre scheme.

More recently she has also managed the extensive refurbishment and rebrand of one of the company’s newest properties, 123 Albion Street.

Ms Green, who also sits on the board of LeedsBID as a Non-Executive Director and Leeds Chamber of Commerce leadership group, will now oversee the management of the full existing TCS property portfolio across Leeds, Manchester, London and Scotland.

The appointments follow the departure of Lynda Shillaw who stepped down from the role of group property director and left the company’s Board on 31 August 2020. As a result of these changes the company will not be appointing a group property director.

“Helen and Craig have both made significant impacts on the region’s development landscape and we are confident that their delivery expertise and network of respected contacts will play a key role in realising TCS’s long-term development ambitions especially in Yorkshire and the North West,” said Edward Ziff, TCS Chairman and Chief Executive.

“They have delivered numerous high calibre projects during their illustrious careers, which means we are well prepared for any forthcoming industry challenges and are confident in the continued resilience and success of TCS.”
