EXCLUSIVE: Reef development director to step down
By David Wood | 29th September 2023
Esther Croft, who has been 'crucial' in bringing Gloucester's flagship Forum development to life, is to step down as Reef's development director.
Esther is handing over her responsibilities on The Forum to the wider team at Reef from October.
Esther has supported the £200m regeneration of Kings Quarter since 2017 as part of the project team working with Gloucester City Council to transform the city centre.
During this time, The Forum has progressed through the planning process and is on track to be completed in 2024.
Esther said: "I've loved working with partners in Gloucester on this important development for several years.
"Everyone has made fantastic progress together, and I look forward to seeing the success continue and The Forum act as a flagship for Gloucester's future regeneration."
Peter Langly Smith, development director at Reef Group, added: "The progress made on the Forum is testament to Esther's work.
"The people and businesses of Gloucester can see The Forum taking shape and it's generating lots of conversation and excitement.
"Our focus is firmly on creating a quality sustainable development that will benefit Gloucester and the wider South West.
"The team is committed to delivering the scheme and I'm grateful for the work and energy that Esther has brought to the project."
Cllr Richard Cook, leader of Gloucester City Council, said: "I'd like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Esther for her dedicated work over the years, which has been crucial in bringing this vision to life.
"We will continue to work with Reef to build on the strong foundation for a sustainable, vibrant Gloucester."
