More about Roger Madelin

After working for a national building contractor for 7 years Roger joined an 'innovative' property development business based in the Thames Valley. Despite some successful projects including the refurbishment and extension of the Listed Dogmasfield Park (now a Four Season's Hotel) they went bust and Roger joined Argent in 1987. He became the Development Director at Argent in 1989 and then CEO from 1997 until 2006 and then Joint CEO until 2013.

At Argent, Roger was responsible for leading and delivering all of Argent's major development projects including several in and around Reading, Brindleyplace in Birmingham, major projects in Manchester and the City of London. From 2000 until he left Argent at the end of 2015, his main focus was leading the redevelopment of the 57 acre development between and to the north of King's Cross and St. Pancras Station. These King's Cross 'railway lands' comprised 20 Listed buildings and structures totally over 1 million square feet of accommodation. Many of these buildings have now been brought back to active use, the largest of which, the Granary complex is now home to Central St. Martins.

In February 2016, Roger joined British Land to head up their 46 acre Canada Water Development.
At Canada Water, British LAnd has recently acquired a Grade 2 Listed Dock office building.

In 2006 Roger was awarded The CBE for 'services to sustainable development'.
