Commercial property giant Grosvenor Group has appointed Melanie Gee, initially as a non-executive director, with a view to her becoming chair of the Grosvenor Britain & Ireland (GBI) board. She is set to succeed Jonathon Bond from September.
Gee is a London-based senior adviser to global financial advisory and asset management firm Lazard, having joined as a managing director in 2008. She spent the previous 25 years in the financial advisory business with SG Warburg & Co and then UBS.
Mark Preston, chief executive of the Grosvenor Group, said of her impending appointment: “She will bring new perspectives and insights to the business, helping it to navigate the many challenges and opportunities it faces”.
James Raynor, chief executive, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, added: “I am looking forward to Melanie’s support and guidance as we strive to redefine the relationship between property owners, tenants and communities, based around a model of mutual success, and demonstrate that property can be a force for good in this country”.
As previously announced, Bond is taking up the newly-created role of chief investment officer, Grosvenor Estate.
