Jeremy Greenland to step down as CEO of PLP

PLP has today announced that its current Chief Executive Officer, Jeremy Greenland, has decided to step down to pursue new opportunities outside of PLP. Following this decision the PLP Board of Directors has appointed Neil Dickinson, Chief Investment Officer, to lead the business going forward.

Jeremy leaves PLP after seven years of service after joining from Evander Properties in 2016. He has led PLP as it has developed more than nine million square feet of logistics space with a gross development value in excess of £1.3 billion. The business currently manages three investment vehicles on behalf of a number of global institutional capital partners, all focused on delivering state-of-the-art facilities in prime logistics and industrial hubs across the United Kingdom.

Neil joined as CIO in 2016 following PLP’s merger with Evander Properties. With over 28 years’ experience in the sector, Neil has played a key role in supporting PLP’s evolution into a leading development and investment manager of prime UK logistics and industrial real estate.

Andrew Penny, Chairman of PLP, said: “On behalf of PLP’s Board of Directors, shareholders, staff and partners, I would like to warmly thank Jeremy for his leadership of the business over the past seven years. PLP has been transformed and has a bright future ahead. I am pleased that we can leverage Neil’s significant experience as we effect a smooth leadership transition and position PLP for its next phase of growth.”

Jeremy Greenland said: “I am pleased to have played a role in helping build the world-class real estate developer and investment manager that PLP is today. With £1.3 billion of assets under management, a significant development pipeline, and a differentiated value proposition for our leading logistics and industrial partners, I am confident PLP will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Neil Dickinson said: “I feel privileged to have the backing of the shareholders to lead PLP into the next phase of its exciting growth trajectory. With the support of our shareholders and strategic partners, our collaborative teams across London and Manchester continue to source attractive development opportunities that meet the growing needs of our logistics and industrial clients”.
