Mixed-use property developer, Rockwell has announced the appointment of former Amazon and Lidl exec Oliver Barrett as land director.

Barrett, who joins Rockwell having helped build the Amazon Real Estate Team, brings significant large-scale acquisitions experience and expertise to the company. Barrett had previously held the role of head of property at Lidl GB, where he oversaw a team of acquisitions and construction managers for store openings in London and spearheaded the planning team on Lidl’s new 250,000 sq. ft Head Office in Tolworth.

The appointment comes at an exciting time for Rockwell, with the landmark, award-winning £151 million mixed-use scheme, Vetro, set for completion in mid-2022, and several upcoming project milestones and strategic acquisitions in the pipeline in the coming months.

The London-based property developer is now seeking to continue expanding its operation across the capital in the near future.

Commenting on his appointment, Rockwell’s land director, Oliver Barrett, who will be responsible for driving Rockwell’s flexible approach to acquisitions, commented: “I am equal parts proud and excited to be joining the Rockwell team as land director, and I look forward to identifying and bringing forward landmark schemes for this industry-leading property developer.”

Nicholas Mee, Rockwell managing director added: “We are all delighted to welcome Oliver to the team as Land Director, and we have every confidence that his knowledge, skills and experience are exactly what Rockwell needs to build effectively on our exciting project portfolio.”

Rockwell is a property developer with a proven track record of delivering quality development projects across the UK. Founded in 2015 by Donal Mulryan, the business has already made a significant market impact, as evidenced by Rockwell’s high-profile investment partnerships, enabling the company to react quickly to new development opportunities.

The company’s expertise spans four major pillars: land acquisitions, planning, development management and construction. Rockwell is actively seeking large development sites in Greater London, prioritising those with untapped potential to transform entire neighbourhoods through innovative urban design and delivery.
