The London Historic Buildings Trust (LHBT) is very pleased to confirm the appointments of Rosie Shaw as Senior Project Manager, Dickon Moore as Project Manager and Beth Thomas as Finance Manager. Putting this staff team in place has marked an important step in the Trust’s ambitious strategy to expand its capacity to deliver a larger number of sustainable, heritage-led regeneration projects and focus on social impact.
The award of a three-year Regional Capacity Building grant by Historic England in June this year has provided the funding for the two project manager roles.
Rosie Shaw, who has extensive project management experience in the heritage sector, has been working with the Trust in a freelance capacity since 2017. She is also a specialist architectural paint researcher – she is the Honorary Secretary of the Traditional Paint Forum, and sits on the ICON Historic Interiors Group. Dickon Moore joined the Trust recently, having held site-based roles with English Heritage and Tate. He has also undertaken freelance work for the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Beth Thomas started work with the Trust in 2019. She has substantial operational management experience in the arts and heritage sector, having previously worked for English Heritage and Historic England with responsibility for a wide range of historic buildings.
Diana Beattie OBE, Chair of LHBT, said: “We are delighted that we now have in place such a dedicated team of high-quality people who are passionate about the power of heritage to improve people’s lives. I’m confident that with their enthusiasm and expertise, and the support of a committed board of Trustees, we face an exciting future in LHBT’s work to regenerate historic buildings to help communities thrive.”
Simon Buteux, Partnerships Team Leader at Historic England, said: “Historic England has collaborated with London Historic Buildings Trust on several successful restoration projects and we are delighted that this funding will allow their work to continue and grow, benefitting both the wider heritage sector and local communities in London.”
