NEW YORK (June 7, 2022) Lendlease, a leading global real estate and investment management group, today announced the appointment of Mark Dickinson to the role of Managing Director of Development, for its Americas region, effective April 7, 2022. Dickinson is based out of Lendlease’s New York City office and reports directly to Denis Hickey, Global Chief Operating Officer and Chief Executive Officer Lendlease Americas.
Dickinson is a 20-year veteran of the Development and Construction sectors in both Europe and Australia. He will provide executive leadership and oversight to the existing Development management team, including the development leaders in Lendlease’s five gateway cities – New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles – to guide successful execution of anticipated growth opportunities and initiatives.
“Mark brings a global perspective along with demonstrated expertise in mixed-use master planning, placemaking and property management across all residential segments, including luxury, senior and affordable housing, which will be of great value to Lendlease,” said Hickey. “Mark will work collaboratively alongside the regional development leads as we grow our integrated platform and expand our residential footprint in the Americas.”
From 2010-2013, Dickinson worked with Lendlease as the managing director of development for the Europe, Middle East and Asia (EMEA) region where he oversaw development and construction of some of Lendlease’s seminal projects, including the regeneration of the Elephant & Castle district into a mixed-use urban center with over 3,000 new homes; the development of the International Quarter business district that encompasses 350 homes and over 4 million square feet of commercial space under his tenure; and construction of the Athlete’s Village that delivered 2,800 apartments to house 17,000 athletes during London’s 2012 Olympic games.
For the past nine years, Dickinson has led multifamily asset development and property management with several U.K.-based firms, including founding Anthology, a residential development firm backed by Oaktree Private Equity; Pegasus, a property management company specializing in retirement communities where he served as CEO; and LifeStory, a residential development firm he founded and served as CEO and then Chair. In addition, he served as a non-executive director of Town & Country Housing, part of Peabody, an affordable housing provider operating in Kent and Sussex.
“Like Lendlease, I have an ambition to live in a world warmed by no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius and look forward to furthering the impressive strides the company is making in developing vibrant, meaningful communities in the U.S.,” said Dickinson. “The depth of experience and knowledge I gained working with Lendlease in the early 2010s has proven invaluable over my career and I am honored to return to the company.”
Dickinson holds a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering from the University of Exeter and previously served for over 11 years as a Major in the British Army.
In the US, Lendlease’s development business brings over 60 years of global experience to bear in urbanization, communities and infrastructure development. Leveraging our placemaking expertise and integrated business model, it is committed to delivering transformational urbanization projects and investments in gateway cities that generate social, environmental and economic value.
