Gordon Carey is new president of the British Council for Offices

Gordon Carey, co-founder of Carey Jones architects, has been appointed president of the British Council for Offices (BCO) for 2007-8.

Carey, who was appointed last night at the BCO's Annual General Meeting, will replace current president Ann Minogue, a partner at law firm Linklaters.

Carey, who chaired the BCO's New York conference this year, is also the vice chairman of the British Urban Regeneration Association and a founding member of the Leeds Chamber of Commerce Property Forum.

He set up Carey Jones with partner Chris Jones in 1987. Now in its 20th year, the firm came in at number 43 in this year's AJ 100 and has offices in London, Leeds and New York.

Carey said: 'My ambition for the year is to support the BCO's efforts to extend the its mission of seeking to research, develop and communicate best practice in all aspects of the office sector.

'I want to take it on to a more international footing and strengthen its relationships with other organisations,' he added.
