Alexander Nicoll will move to the house builder in November. He has worked for the Church or England since 1987 and during that time has also held roles within Westminster City Council. He became Lord Mayor of the City of Westminster in 2006.

During his time working for the Church of England he advised its ministry and mission in a variety of public facing roles. For a period, Nicoll was seconded to work for the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams as his deputy secretary for public affairs.

Nicoll will take over the role from Peter Badcock, who has developed Liberty CSR best practice since 2002, and who is retiring from the role at the end of 2007.

Liberty has a CSR report, due to be published in early 2008, which the property firm says ‘will provide further information on Liberty International’s progress in integrating best environmental practice into its business activities and its extensive community programmes linked to its regional shopping centres’.
