RTPI Member named CEO of Taylor Wimpy

RTPI Member and planner Jennie Daly has been appointed as the first female CEO of Taylor Wimpey.

Daly, who is one of a handful of female CEOs at FTSE 100 companies, is currently group operations director and member of the board. This move will see her become the first female boss of a listed housebuilder, with Taylor Wimpey becoming one of the few companies with women holding both the chair and CEO roles.

With nearly 30 years in the industry, Daly, 51, will take up her position in April as the replacement for Peter Redfearn following an internal and external search from Taylor Wimpey for its next leader.

The RTPI member joined Taylor Wimpey in 2014 as UK director of planning and UK land following time spent as UK planning director from Redrow, another housebuilder.

Daly said: “I am energised by the opportunities at Taylor Wimpey and look forward to working closely with the board and our teams to deliver on the significant potential at the company.”
