Tim Laurence takes Non-Executive role at Capita Symonds

28 April 2011

Tim Laurence (Vice Admiral Tim Laurence CB, MVO, ADC) has joined the board of Capita Symonds as a Non Executive Director.

Tim (right) brings skills and experience developed during a distinguished naval career. His early career was largely operational, including four warship commands.

He has been involved in all defence reforms since the 1990s. Latterly his roles as a key strategist and resource planner within the MOD culminated in his appointment as Chief Executive of Defence Estates, where he oversaw the three year change programme which led to the formation of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

Tim’s interests in property, regeneration, defence, security and transport make his a natural appointment for Capita Symonds. As custodian for over 700 listed buildings, 1,200 scheduled monuments and 170 SSSIs, he has developed a particular interest in sustainability and regeneration.

I look forward to contributing to the Board’s strategic debates and to helping the company support the Government’s efficiency programme

Tim said: “I am delighted to be joining the board of Capita Symonds at such a challenging but interesting time for the company. I have been very impressed with the company’s ideas, their ambitions and their approach to solving complex problems. I look forward to contributing to the Board’s strategic debates and to helping the company support the Government’s efficiency programme.”

Jonathan Goring, Managing Director of Capita Symonds, added “Tim has already supported and advised upon our response to the Government’s efficiency programme. I am delighted that we will be working together to ensure Capita Symonds supports the UK Government in the most appropriate way, as well as providing guidance and challenge to our Executive Board.”
