Cressida Hogg currently chairs the Board of Landsec having first joined the Board as a Non-Executive Director in 2014. She spent nearly 20 years at 3i Group plc and was one of the co-founders of 3i’s infrastructure business in 2005, becoming Managing Partner in 2009. During this time, Cressida Hogg advised on all of 3i’s infrastructure transactions. She was also Global Head of Infrastructure at Canada Pension Plan Investment Board between 2014 and 2018.

Sir Donald Brydon, Chairman, London Stock Exchange Group plc, said:

“I am delighted to welcome Cressida Hogg to the Board of LSEG. Cressida brings significant board experience including as Chair of Landsec. She combines this with her strong corporate background in infrastructure and private equity. Her experience will be of great benefit as we continue to deliver on the Group’s strategic ambitions.”

In December last year, LSEG announced the appointment of Professor Kathleen DeRose as an Independent Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. The news about Kathleen DeRose’s appointment was published two weeks after LSEG unveiled the appointment of Donald (Don) Robert as a Non-Executive Director of the Board of LSEG, effective January 1, 2019. He will succeed Donald Brydon as Chairman of LSEG after the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting on May 1, 2019.
