Hammerson hires new chief financial officer

Shopping centre owner Hammerson has hired James Lenton as chief financial officer.

Due to join the company on 16 September, Lenton will take over the role on 1 October. He will also become an executive director of the business.

Lenton previously held the same position at AIG. Prior to that, he worked as a partner at EY where he was responsible for developing a new global strategy for the Insurance Assurance practice. His clients included FTSE 100 companies and financial services groups with leading retail brands.

At Hammerson, Lenton will succeed Timon Drakesmith who has decided to leave the company. Drakesmith will step down as an executive director and chief financial officer on 1 October  and leave on 15 November following a handover period.

David Tyler, chair of the board of Hammerson, said: “We look forward to welcoming James to the business. During his career he has demonstrated significant success in working with and managing complex organisations which are experiencing periods of substantial change. We expect his track record in this area, combined with his ability to bring a fresh perspective, to be very valuable to the ongoing management and performance of Hammerson.”
