Cadogan today announces the appointment of Steve Medway to the newly created role of ‘Place Manager’ for the 93-acre Cadogan Estate in Chelsea. He will contribute to shaping Cadogan’s overarching stewardship of the neighbourhood, focusing specifically on coordinating and driving forward placemaking strategy for world-famous destinations such as Sloane Street and the King’s Road.
Medway joins the business from the New West End Company (NWEC), where he has spent the last three years as Managing Director for the trading environment, overseeing the management and promotion of Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street in central London. In this time, he developed the first ever business-led Air Quality Strategy and helped to create the UK’s first ‘Smart Street.’
Hugh Seaborn, CEO of Cadogan, commented: “Steve’s proven track record for delivering large-scale placemaking strategies in central London meant he was the ideal choice for our new ‘Place Manager’ role. He will help to ensure that Chelsea and Knightsbridge remain the most sought after places to live, work and visit into the future. I am pleased to welcome Steve to the team, and confident that he will play a key role in helping us to achieve our long-term objective – to protect and enhance the character and vitality of one of London’s finest neighbourhoods.”
Steve Medway, Place Manager, added: “The opportunity to work in such a dynamic and unique area of London is hugely exciting, and I am honoured to be joining the Cadogan team to build on the leading placemaking work the business is already undertaking in the area. I’m especially looking forward to contributing to Cadogan’s stewardship success and implementing our future sustainability plans for Chelsea.”
