Mr Mar­cus, 49, is chair­man of Credit Suisse’s Euro­pean real-es­tate in­vest­ment bank­ing divi­sion.

He tells Peo­ple: “It’s a great hon­our to be asked to chair the trust. The real-es­tate in­dus­try has bet­ter ap­pre­ci­ated in re­cent years the im­por­tance of sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment and the need to fo­cus on re­gen­er­at­ing our built en­vi­ron­ment.

“I hope that de­spite the chal­leng­ing times we are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing in the prop­erty sec­tor and the econ­omy, this does not re­sult in us ig­nor­ing our re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to the en­vi­ron­ment and our her­itage.”

His new role is to rep­re­sent the trust at ex­ter­nal events and pro­vide sup­port for the ex­ec­u­tive team, in ad­di­tion to in­creas­ing aware­ness among those in­volved in the prop- erty sec­tor of the work of the Trust.
