Former City Hall advisor and London Olympics boss Neale Coleman has been appointed to the National Infrastructure Commission, the body which advises ministers on the UK’s major infrastructure needs.
Coleman has served under all three of London’s mayors. He was first appointed by Ken Livingstone in 2000, was retained by Boris Johnson and returned after a short break to help Sadiq Khan’s transition into power.
His time at City Hall included leading London’s Olympic bid, delivery of the Games and overseeing efforts to secure their regeneration legacy. His work was recognised with a CBE in the 2013 New Year Honours list.
He’s currently Director and Founding Partner at Blackstock Partnerships Limited.
