Sue Bruce wins City Leader of the Year award

The Chief Executive of the City of Edinburgh Council, Sue Bruce, has been named City Leader of Year in recognition of her role in the Council’s economic development achievements at a ceremony held in London’s Olympia.

In partnership with real estate magazine Estates Gazette, the inaugural MIPIM UK Awards recognise the achievements of partners in the public and private sector in revitalising UK cities and towns.

Mrs Bruce won praise for driving forward plans to develop important gap sites in the city centre and for her role in the St James redevelopment plans, attracting £850 million to regenerate local infrastructure and public space.

Council Leader, Councillor Andrew Burns, said: “This award is testament to Sue’s abilities and her commitment to the City of Edinburgh. It is also much deserved recognition for her successful engagement with the business community, which has led to accelerated regeneration and helped strengthen the city’s reputation as a world leading business hub.”

MIPIM UK holds events which gather together investors, developers and Local Authorities looking to close deals in the UK property market.
