The Crown Estate announces Dan Labbad as its new Chief Executive
The Crown Estate has announced Dan Labbad as its new Chief Executive. As Chief Executive, Dan will become Second Commissioner and will join the Board of The Crown Estate. Dan currently serves as Chief Executive Officer of Lendlease Europe.
The appointment follows Dame Alison Nimmo’s announcement in July 2018 that she will be stepping down at the end of this year, following the completion of her second four year term.
Chairman, Robin Budenberg, said: “Dan Labbad’s appointment is very exciting for The Crown Estate. He brings a unique combination of proven leadership, deep commercial experience and international property expertise. Just as importantly, his long-held commitment to sustainability and broader community benefit aligns with our values and purpose.
“Dan will join the business at a key time in its continued transformation, putting our customers at the heart of everything we do, delivering new strategic services and continuing to play a major role in the expansion of the UK’s offshore wind sector. Dan brings significant experience in developing and implementing strategies for change management across various property-based businesses and cultures. Together with the Board and the wider leadership team, I look forward to working with Dan to ensure a smooth leadership transition. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alison again for her eight years as an exceptional and committed leader of The Crown Estate.”
Dan Labbad said: “The Crown Estate is a unique and remarkable business which delivers outstanding financial results whilst taking a long-term view in how it creates value for its customers, partners and local communities. I am honoured to be joining the organisation and working with a team committed to its customers, to achieve meaningful and sustainable outcomes for the broader community and delivering a strong performance for the financial benefit of the nation.”Back to Media & Insights
