Noel, who has 30 years of experience in the property sector, joined the company’s board as an independent non-executive director in October 2019 and moved into the senior independent director position in April 2020.

“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Irene for her outstanding contribution as chair successfully leading the board over the last three years. We welcome her agreement to remain on the board, allowing us to continue to benefit from her wide experience and counsel, and wish her family the best for the future,” said Lord Jitesh Gadhia, TW’s independent non-executive director, who led the search process.

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Rob Noel as Chair to succeed Irene following the conclusion of the next AGM. Rob is well-respected amongst his colleagues and his familiarity with Taylor Wimpey, and long track record in the property sector, provides excellent commercial experience and continuity of leadership as we face a changing market environment.”

Taylor Wimpey shares are down 2.4% at the time of writing Friday.
