Donald Hyslop is Chair of the Trustees of Borough Market. Together with his fellow volunteer trustees, he is responsible for setting and steering the strategic direction of the Borough Market to ensure its protection and survival for generations to come. In his day job, he is Head of Regeneration and Community Partnerships at Tate Modern, London.
Over the last twelve years he has led a culture centred urban renewal programme which has transformed an important part of central London. This has been built on a series of partnerships bringing political agencies, business, BIDs and communities together with cultural organisations and world class artists. He is particularly interested in exploring and thinking about the role culture, architecture and museums can play in the regeneration, place making, economic and social development of cities and communities. He is also Chair of Better Bankside, the business-led regeneration body for SE1.
On Wednesday morning, something resembling normality returned to Borough Market. While our thoughts remain fixed on those killed, injured or struggling to come to terms with this horrific experience, and we will continue to offer as much support as we can to anyone who needs it, we are now starting to push past the horror and look to the future.
