Mixed-use property developer Rockwell has announced the appointment of Oliver Barrett as Land director.
Barrett, who joins Rockwell having helped build the Amazon Real Estate Team, brings large-scale acquisitions experience and expertise to the company.
He will be responsible for driving Rockwell’s flexible approach to acquisitions.
Barrett had previously held the role of head of Property at Lidl GB, where he oversaw a team of acquisitions and construction managers for store openings in London and spearheaded the planning team on Lidl’s new 250,000 sq. ft head office in Tolworth.
His appointment comes as Rockwell moves forward with its £151m mixed-use scheme, Vetro, set for completion in mid-2022.
The company is also expecting to hit several upcoming project milestones in the coming months, as well as secure a number of strategic acquisitions.
The London-based property developer is now seeking to continue expanding its operation across the capital in the near future.
Commenting on his appointment, Barrett said: “I am equal parts proud and excited to be joining the Rockwell team as Land Director, and I look forward to identifying and bringing forward landmark schemes for this industry-leading property developer.”
Nicholas Mee, Rockwell’s managing director, added: “We are all delighted to welcome Oliver to the team as Land Director, and we have every confidence that his knowledge, skills and experience are exactly what Rockwell needs to build effectively on our exciting project portfolio.”
