Lewis Land Group Chairman, Marnie Lewis-Millar, today announced Chris Calvert’s decision to retire as Chief Executive Officer of the Group, and the Board’s decision to appoint Matthew McCarron in his place.

Matthew is currently Lewis Land Group’s Chief Financial Officer, a role he took up in 2017 having previously worked with the Group as a Partner of global professional services firm KPMG.

Chris will retire as CEO on 9 April 2020, but will continue to serve as a Non-Executive Director of the Group.

In announcing the change, Ms Lewis-Millar said: “Chris has driven significant growth and transformation of Lewis Land since his appointment in 2012.  Alongside Matthew, he has positioned the business for long-term success and to deliver for all of our stakeholders.  In considering the transition from Chris’ successful tenure, we are delighted to have an internal successor of Matthew’s calibre to take the business forward.”

Mr Calvert said: “Matt and I have worked closely together over the past three-years and I know that I am leaving the CEO role in very strong hands.  I have been honoured to lead the Group through a period of great change both within the business and across the external environment.  Over this time, we have made significant investments in and improvements to our diverse portfolio of assets and are well positioned for the future.”

Mr McCarron said: “I am honoured to be asked by the Board to succeed Chris as CEO of Lewis Land Group.  I am excited to step up as part of an experienced leadership team and build on the trajectory we have established.  I look forward to working with the Board, management and the wider team to continue Lewis Land Group’s 63-year journey of innovation and success.”
