Jo Negrini


LB Croydon

Jo has worked in regeneration and planning in London for over 28 years and now has, in her words, “ the best regeneration job in London” as Chief Executive of the fastest growing economy in London. Jo now pulls the strings on bringing together all the services of the Council, together with partners to make Croydon a place where people want to be.

She has a wealth of experience in driving regeneration and delivering development, gained in her previous roles at Newham and Lambeth. As the Director of Regeneration at Lambeth, her responsibilities took in a range of regeneration programmes, including leading major public private partnerships with Cathedral on the Clapham One development, and Tesco on Streatham Leisure and retail development.  At Newham, she was Chief Borough Planning Officer and had responsibility for the delivery of the Council's £1.5 billion physical regeneration programme which included redevelopment of a new town centre and large scale housing delivery in Canning Town.
