London Mayor brings in new Olympic team


Boris Johnson has appointed new directors to help London make the most of its Olympic investment.

The legacy board will be led by deputy chairman of Carphone Warehouse, David Ross and include Sir Bob Kerslake and Jeremy Newsum.

"I’m looking to David Ross, supported by this new board, to act as the legacy champion bringing together people from many different backgrounds and ensuring we make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Mr Johnson.

The Olympic Park will feature a range of commercial property, which after the Games will be sold to recoup development costs.

It "can and must be a landmark district of 21st century London that builds on the electrifying excitement and global recognition of the Games themselves".

The board will advise the mayor on how to maximise regeneration opportunities and benefits for the communities in east London.ADNFCR-1329-ID-18808505-ADNFCR
