Cadogan has announced the appointment of Jane Henshaw as Joint Head of Building Surveying, alongside existing Head of Building Nicholas Dutton.
Joining from Strutts, where she headed up the Building Surveying division for 12 years, Henshaw brings plenty of experience to the table; over the course of her 20-year career, she’s surveyed some of the country’s most important country mansions – including Knole House in Kent and Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire – and has also taught and contributed to a number of construction texts.
Her new role will see her lead the provision of project management and building surveying services alongside Dutton for the 93-acre Cadogan Estate in Chelsea, reporting directly in to CEO Hugh Seaborn.
Jane Henshaw: “I am thrilled to be taking on this new role at Cadogan, an estate with such a rich heritage in the heart of London, and excited to be able to bring the experience I’ve gained over twenty years in the profession to this next stage and prestigious appointment. I am looking forward to bringing to fruition the schemes that are planned, as well as completing those already started such as the new Headquarters to which Cadogan is moving later in the year.”
Hugh Seaborn: “We are delighted to have Jane on board at Cadogan, she has impressive experience and skills that should complement those of the existing team. She will be an asset in jointly leading the Building Surveying team and progressing our major programme of refurbishment and development to ensure that the fabric of the estate continues to be kept to the highest standards.”
The Cadogan Estate has been in the same family ownership for 300 years, and continues in the hands of the present Viscount Chelsea who succeeded his father, Earl Cadogan as group chairman in March 2012.
