Andrew Roughan, Managing Director, Plexal
Andrew was part of the founding team that secured Here East’s 200-year lease from the London Legacy Development Corporation to transform the former press and broadcast centre at the Olympic Park into an ecosystem and community that delivers on the legacy of the Games.
A decade on and the campus is now a home to almost 4,000 people working and studying on-site, changing the face of East London by opening up new opportunities to the wider community.
