Countrywide chief executive Alison Platt is one of 10 property industry entries in the ‘Power 100 Women’ list compiled by business newspaper and website City AM.
Platt - who earlier this year was listed amongst the 50 most powerful people in the property industry by respected magazine Estates Gazette - is listed by City AM for her role at Countrywide and now as a board member of supermarket giant Tesco.
Lisa Hollands of CBRE is another entry: she is managing director of central London residential at the firm and is “now regarded of one of the most powerful people in the capital’s increasingly exclusive residential sector.”
Other property figures on the list include former policewoman Melanie Leech, who became chief executive of the British Property Federation in 2014 and is credited with securing reforms to commercial property business rates in this year’s Budget; her BPF predecessor Liz Peace is another City AM entry.
The other six nominees are from the world of commercial property and property finance.
