Borough Market Trustees have appointed Peter Wilkinson as board chairman with Glenis Reagon as managing director.
The new chair is taking over from Camilla McGibbon who recently stood down from the board after serving for two years in the chair.
"Camilla worked tirelessly for Borough Market for four years and her significant accomplishment was to develop a framework of corporate governance for the Market that will ensure transparency and efficacy of its operating processes for generations of Trustees, managers and stakeholders to come,"¯ said Peter Wilkinson.
Glenis Reagon, the market's financial controller who has been acting CEO, succeeds Simone Crofton who was known as chief executive.
"Our retail and wholesale traders and the service they provide make Borough Market dear to the heart of all Londoners, local residents and food businesses," said the new managing director Glenis Reagon. "I am looking forward to working closely with the whole Market to ensure we continue to offer a unique food experience for our customers during this time of transition¯."
New chairman Peter Wilkinson added: "It is a time of exceptional challenge for the Market. In addition to the reconstruction of the Thameslink railway viaduct across the Market's trading space, we are trading in difficult economic times. These combined challenges will make our cause of providing an excellent food market difficult but we have every confidence in Glenis's ability to navigate the Market's management and operations into a new era of success."
Alongside these new appointments, and in recognition of the various areas that the market needs to address, the Trustees have also elected two current Trustees, Patricia Brown and Karen Horsley, to the position of vice-chairmen.
