Heather Hilburn, TEP Chief Executive awarded Honorary Fellowship of the RIBA

I am delighted to announce that our Chief Executive, Heather Hilburn, has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects (FRIBA). This award is given to individuals who are recognised for outstanding achievements and thought leadership in the natural and built environments, including urban regeneration, culture, design, and learning and engagement.

This award is a reminder of the wealth of expertise that Heather brings to TEP, including planning, policy and development, impact investing as well as a deep understanding of heritage and cultural institutions. The depth of her knowledge will help us achieve our objectives in that very unique space we work in, where the land and sea come together.

Heather is well placed to help us build a strong partnership across many disciplines, sectors and communities and ensure our work is investment ready.
