istock [square]Legal & General has made three appointments to its suburban build to rent (SBTR) senior leadership team.

Tom Henry has been appointed as investment director. He was previously national acquisitions director at Grainger plc and residential fund manager at LaSalle Investment Management.

Catherine Hipperson joins as operations director from Savills. In her new role she will deliver operational standards of property management and customer service to support high levels of occupancy.

Jane Sullivan joins as finance director from Durkan Group, where she was head of corporate finance. She has held roles at CBRE and Peabody Trust and brings 17 years of experience in structuring and financing residential development activity.

David Reid, managing director, Legal & General, suburban build to rent, said: "With working practises and demands changing rapidly, in light of the pandemic, it’s more important than ever that we deliver high quality homes to meet societal demand. We’re still falling far short of the 300,000 new homes targeted for delivery each year.

"Jane, Catherine and Tom are key hires who will help us lead the way in further establishing the Suburban Build to Rent sector to deliver well-managed, service-led communities, which provide a reliable and positive alternative to home ownership.”
