Boxpark appoints new directors

Boxpark has welcomed two new non-executive directors John Leslie and Scott Murdoch to the board to help guide the strategic development of the company as it continues to grow.

Leslie has over 30 years of experience in the sector, previously holding CFO and CEO roles at companies such as iNTERTAIN Ltd, Scottish & Newcastle Retail and Regent Inns.

“I am very pleased to be joining Roger and the team as a director of Boxpark Limited,” says Leslie. “It’s a very exciting time for Boxpark as they are poised to develop and expand the business from the successful and robust base already established in Shoreditch and Croydon.”

Murdoch is the founder and managing director of retail property advisor CWM, and has already worked with Boxpark on projects including the Wembley expansion.

“I have long been an admirer of Boxpark since my business became involved in the leasing of Shoreditch many years ago,” comments Murdoch. “It’s incredible how far Roger and the team have come since those humble beginnings and now that Croydon is performing so well together with the opening of Wembley around the corner and a tried and tested F&B led formula working so well there is a huge growth opportunity for new sites which I am personally delighted to become part of – very exciting times!”
