SEGRO has appointed Anna Bond as head of Western Corridor.

She will be responsible for the overall leadership of the company’s development and asset management activities across the Thames Valley, including the Slough Trading Estate and the Heathrow Airport and M4 corridor portfolio.

The region has £5.3 billion of assets under SEGRO management, the largest in the group.

Anna has more than 20 years’ experience in the real estate sector. Most recently she was executive director in Grosvenor’s UK property business, responsible for the delivery and letting of the UK development pipeline across office, retail, residential and public realm.

Since joining Grosvenor in 2008 she has also held senior positions in its flagship London estate, including leading asset, investment and property management. She has, among other development milestones, driven Grosvenor’s first net-zero office building at Holbein Gardens in Belgravia.

Anna will join SEGRO on June 10 and will become a member of the company’s UK leadership team, reporting to UK managing director, James Craddock.

He said: “Anna will be a fantastic asset for SEGRO, our customers and our partners. She brings a wealth of experience in development, investment, property and asset management, and her broad real estate background will offer different perspectives and complement the industrial and logistics expertise within the rest of our UK leadership and Western Corridor teams.

“2024 is an exciting time to take the reins of SEGRO’s Western Corridor region which is the largest in our Group by value. We have an ambitious ten-year vision for the Slough Trading Estate, which will enable diverse and sustainable job opportunities and economic growth.

“We also have a leading cluster of data centres which continues to enable our customers to meet soaring demand from cloud computing and the digital economy, and we’re focused on driving performance of our strategic assets at Heathrow Airport.”
