Speaking of her new role, Cassandra said: "I am delighted to be joining CGMA and becoming part of the team that is transforming New Covent Garden Market. Whilst I am joining at a challenging time amidst Brexit and Covid-19, there is much to be excited about and my newly created role will allow CGMA to continue to support and guide its tenants through this tumultuous time. I very much look forward to working with like-minded individuals to see the market thrive through its redevelopment and beyond."

The CGMA is redeveloping New Covent Garden Market to create a leading horticultural market that will redefine the role a wholesale hub in a capital’s city centre. Cassandra’s new role will be crucial to this long-term project, which is set to deliver brand new, modern market buildings and facilities in Nine Elms for the 175 businesses it currently houses, as well as fostering new food businesses in New Covent Garden Market’s Food Exchange.
