We are pleased to announce the appointment of David Hills as a non-executive director at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. As part of his role, David will chair the Project Oriel committee, taking over from Andrew Nebel from 1 April 2017. 

David will take a lead role in significant development projects to improve the services we offer to patients. This will include Project Oriel, our long-term plan to build a new world leading eye centre to deliver clinical care, education and research in the Kings Cross/St Pancras area of London.

David is an experienced construction and project delivery professional whose career has included senior and board level roles for a number of FTSE companies, including Mouchel and Laing O’Rourke. He has also worked in senior project and programme delivery roles in the public sector. David co-founded and built a project management business over 20 years, which became the largest independent project management advisory organisation in the UK at the time of its acquisition in 2006. David was also the programme director for the new London Underground station works at Kings Cross between 1998 and 2004 and has a great deal of experience in the major development of the area.

In the lead up to the London 2012 Olympics, David was a non-executive director of Sport England (East). He currently holds a board role for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

David said: “I am delighted to have been appointed to the board at Moorfields. The opportunity to bring my experience to the trust at such an exciting time is hugely rewarding and I look forward to contributing my knowledge and experience to the tremendous opportunities we have coming our way.”
