LCP appoints Ben Chislett UK Head of Retail

LCP has appointed Ben Chislett as UK head of retail after they invested more than €323 million in retail assets, from local convenience parades to regional centers, in 2021.

Ben Chislett joins the company from Savills, where he was retail director for nine years, advising both retailers and landlords on their acquisition and disposal strategies. As a specialist in national retail agency, who was also previously a director at CBRE, he will oversee and manage the retail arm of all four LCP offices in the UK, which are located in London, Bristol, Glasgow and its headquarters in Pensnett, West Midlands. 

James Buchanan, managing director, said: “As we increasingly focus on retail acquisitions, this is an important, key senior appointment. We are pleased to have brought Ben over to LCP for this exciting chapter in the business’s history. We have exciting plans ahead, with more than €359 million available to invest a year in retail assets, and Ben will undoubtedly play a key role as we forge ahead with our acquisitions over the coming years.”

Ben Chislett added: “With so many property companies moving away from retail, it’s fantastic that LCP shares my vision and sees an exciting long-term future for retail assets in the UK.”
