Patricia Brown MBE

Director, Central and Vice-chair, British Property Federation’s Development Committee, British Property Federation’s Development Committee

Patricia Brown has been in leadership roles in since the mid-1990s, and at the heart of many of the initiatives that have been part of the successful urban evolution of London and beyond.
She was part of the capital’s inaugural inward investment agency before leading Central London Partnership, the cross-sector partnership focused on maintaining the capital’s position as a global world city. Placing the combination of economic and social vibrancy at the centre of its ground-breaking work – including the establishment of the BIDs movement in the UK – helped to achieve a more people-centred, liveable, city.

Through her consultancy, Central, Patricia has continued with this focus of inter-disciplinary dot-connecting, advising civic and business leaders on positive urban change and development; building the vision, collaborations, strategies and partnerships to achieve this. Building positive public private partnerships has defined Patricia’s work and she has led the British Property Federation’s work on this area for some years.

She is the non-executive chair of South Kensington Estates Ltd and other current board positions include Historic England’s London and national advisory committees and GWR’s Strategic Advisory Board.
