greenbelt strengthens its board

The UK's largest land management company, Greenbelt, has strengthened its Board as it positions itself for growth throughout 2012.

David Armour has been appointed as the new Chairman while Brian Bassett has been named as Managing Director of the Glasgow-based business.






In a Board-level reshuffle, former-MD Alex Middleton has now become Chief Executive Officer of parent company Greenbelt (Holdings) Limited, concentrating on Group Policy, Strategy and opportunities in the growing energy sector.

MD Brian Bassett said: "I am excited at joining the leading land management company in the UK, particularly during this exciting time of growth and providing sustainable solutions for local authorities, developers and residents."

Brian joined Greenbelt from Meadfleet, a land management company based in Stevenage, in south-east England. He will be based in Glasgow but will concentrate on new business in England.

New Chairman David Armour has been a Director of Greenbelt (Holdings) Limited for four years. He brings a corporate finance background to Greenbelt, advising corporate and institutional clients across the UK, and is a specialist technology investor. He also holds a number of non-executive Board positions.

Greenbelt recently achieved a landmark success, securing its 400th development in the UK. It now has more than 33,000 customers throughout Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland.
