RivingtonHark has appointed Amy Blackwell to lead their ESG programme and as a Director of Asset Management

She will play a key role in the enhancement of both private and public sector assets, drawing on her extensive retail and placemaking experience to ensure continual futureproofing of assets and creating material environmental and social value.

On the asset management side, Amy will be heavily involved in executing the strategy with Redical Holdings, including the running of Victoria Leeds that has been recently acquired.

Amy was a Director of London and Continental Railways Ltd (LCR) where she led the asset management team. Her roles included creating best value at least cost for all built assets, chaired various Governance panels, and developed their sustainability initiatives. She also ran the historic repurposing of the former international Eurostar terminal at London Waterloo Station into a new retail and leisure destination.

Amy brings experience from her time in Fund Management at Lothbury Investment Management, where she was primarily responsible for the strategic asset management of high street and out of town retail properties. Prior to this, at Intu Properties PLC she enhanced the tenant mix and undertook repurposing initiatives at shopping centres in Uxbridge and Milton Keynes.

Mark Harvey, Executive Director at RivingtonHark says “we are delighted Amy has joined, both to lead and expand the important work we have been doing on ESG across our portfolio but also in our partnership work with Redical Holdings including the recently acquired Victoria Leeds project. Her placemaking skills are also going to complement the work we do across the portfolio.”

Amy Blackwell, Director of Asset Management, added: “I am passionate about creating sustainable communities and environments and look forward to working with the experienced team at RivingtonHark and their clients to deliver these.”
