Dame Alison Carnwath, DBE

Chairman Land Securities

Alison Carnwath is the only female chairman of a FTSE 100 company. Beginning her career as a trainee accountant at KPMG in 1975, Carnwath now sits on the board of Land Securities, the largest commercial property company in the UK. In 1988 she became a director at the investment bank Schroders, a position so untouched by her gender before that they had to install female toilets especially. Becoming chairman of Land Securities in 2008 is considered by Carnwath to be her proudest achievement. In 2014, Carnwath was awarded a DBE in the New Year’s Honours list.
