New Londoner of the Year

Congratulations to our Chairman, John Burns, who has been crowned this year's New Londoner at the New London Awards.

John Burns, Chairman, Derwent London. John’s selection as New Londoner of the Year 2019 marks his retirement from Derwent London as Chief Executive, although he will remain Chairman. We recognise his contribution to the delivery of high-quality design and his commercial brilliance, but most of all his — and Simon’s — dedication to and faith in London, its character, its villages, its emerging businesses —particularly in design and tech — and its people.
