Borough Market appoints permanent chief executive
London’s famous Borough Market has appointed Jane Swift as chief executive on a permanent basis.
She has been working as interim chief executive of the food market since September 2021.
With a background in the corporate world and the charity sector, Swift worked with organisations such as the Trussell Trust, Workers Education Association and the Landscape Institute before joining Borough Market.
Owned by a charitable trust, the market is run by volunteer trustees who oversee its governance and support of the local community.
Adrian Bunnis, chair of trustees at Borough Market, said: “We were delighted when Jane applied for the role and even more delighted that she secured this important position against some tough external competition. Jane’s wealth of talent and experience will help us continue to make Borough Market the best food market in the world.
“We have utter confidence in Jane’s ability to work alongside the Market’s staff and traders to sustain the progress that has been made during the past year as we strive towards achieving our ambitious strategy for 2030.”
