Revo has added another retail expert to the fold with Flying Tiger entrepreneur Philip Bier joining as junior vice president, according to a report by Drapers.

The non-profit professional body representing the retail property sector has announced Bier will serve under Revo’s new president Aililsh Christian-West for 12 months.

Tim Vallance of new estate advisers JLL will become president in 2021, and will be succeeded by Bier in 2022.

Bier became a retail entrepreneur after teaming up with Tiger’s founder to bring the Copenhagen brand to a British market in 2006.

Bier sold his 50 per cent share in the business in 2017 and now works as an investor, retailer and adviser for commercial and charitable organisations.

“Philip has a proven record as a successful and disruptive retailer, who will perfectly complement the retail property development, investment and advisory skills on the Board,” Revo chief executive Ed Cooke said to Drapers regarding Bier’s appointment.

“With the arrival of Vivienne King, incoming CEO, in the spring, and given her mixed-use and housing background, we have a fresh, dynamic and well-balanced board in place to take Revo into the next phase of its evolution.”

The move comes after Vivienne King was named as Revo’s new chief executive.

King will step into her role when Cooke leaves the business in March next year.

King brings more than 30 years of business, advisory and real estate industry experience and joins from Soho Housing Association, where she has been chief executive for the last three and a half years.

Prior to that she spent more than 20 years at The Crown Estate, latterly on the management committee as director of business operations and general counsel where she led business delivery from London and in Scotland.
