Shaftesbury PLC

Peter Lawrence Levy OBE

The Board of Shaftesbury is saddened to announce the death of Peter Levy, the Company's founder and former Chairman, following a short illness.

Peter and members of his family founded the Company in 1986, with an initial capital of £10 million. It was floated in October 1987. Peter chaired the Board until his retirement in September 2004. 

Peter was widely-known and well-respected across the real estate sector, particularly as a partner in DE & J Levy, the West End estate agency started by his father and uncle in the 1930s. He had a wide range of charitable interests, including the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, where his fundraising was recognised with the award of an OBE.

Brian Bickell, Chief Executive said:

"Shaftesbury's reputation, culture and values owe much to Peter's foresight and commitment in the formative years of the business. He will be greatly missed not only by his family but all those who were fortunate to know him and work alongside him."
