(Alliance News) - Land Securities PLC on Friday said it appointed Ian Cheshire as chair to take over from Cressida Hogg in May.
Cheshire was chief executive officer of DIY retailer Kingfisher PLC from 2008 to 2015. Currently, he is chair of Channel 4 Television Corp, Spire Healthcare Group PLC and Menhaden Resource Efficiency PLC.
