Capital & Regional welcomes NHS director abord its team

The specialist retail property investment organisation has appointed Gerry Murphy, NHS director and former Deloitte partner, as a non-executive director.

Arguably, there is no one better qualified to join Capital & Regional’s team. Gerry Murphy, who is also set to take over as chairman of the group’s audit committee from Ian Krieger once he stands down on 3rd June, is currently a non-executive director of Currys and was previously senior independent director of Capital & Counties Properties.

Ian Krieger is due to stand down from his role as he will have served his full nine-year term as an independent director of the company.

Murphy is also a non-executive board member of the Department of Health and Social Care, chairs its audit and risk committee and is a co-operated member of the NHS England audit and risk assurance committee.

Commenting on the news, David Hunter, chair of Capital & Regional, has said that Murphy will be bringing great financial expertise to the company.

‘Gerry brings a wealth of retail, property and financial experience from a diverse range of real estate and related businesses, which is directly relevant to our strategy,’ Hunter said. ‘His expertise will be invaluable to the company and its future growth ambitions, and the board and I very much look forward to working with him.’

Hunter added: ‘On behalf of the board, I would also like to thank Ian who has been a highly supportive and insightful board member during a period of significant change for the company.’
