LG has hired a former chartered surveyor as operations director in its real estate team, a new role created to help develop the property practice. John Heawood joins from property company Segro, where he was executive director.
A spokesman for LG described the new role as a hybrid of business development and finance. Heawood will work alongside joint heads of real estate Jon Lloyd and Rabinder Chaggar. Chaggar said the move would offer “significant insight into legal services from the point of view of our clients”.
