The Chancellor has today announced the appointment of Neale Coleman CBE as a Commissioner, alongside the reappointment of Tim Besley, Sadie Morgan and Bridget Rosewell for a further five year term.
Sir John Armitt, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission, has welcomed the announcement by the Chancellor:

“I am very pleased to welcome Neale to the Commission. From our time working together on the Olympics I know he brings a depth of experience in infrastructure planning and how it can help improve the economic prospects of communities.

“Alongside the confirmation that we will continue to benefit from the expertise of Tim, Sadie and Bridget, I also look forward to welcoming further new Commissioners in due course to further broaden the insights and expertise we offer to government.”

Notes
Neale Coleman worked at the Greater London Authority from 2000 – 2015, leading the Mayor’s work on London’s Olympic bid, the delivery of the Games and their regeneration legacy, and was a Board Member of the Olympic Delivery Authority throughout its life. Neale co-chaired the Olympic Delivery Group, which had responsibility for leading preparations for the Games prior to the creation of the ODA, ensuring the right infrastructure was in place to support the largest sporting event in the world.

In addition to the Olympics, Neale led the first Mayor’s approach to housing, regeneration, health and devolution and steered multi agency groups on some of London’s biggest regeneration areas. Neale has also served as Policy Director for the Labour Party.
