The Oxford Science Park appoints Jitesh Patel as Development Manager

Oxford, UK, January 19 2022 - The Oxford Science Park, one of the UK's leading parks for science and technology companies, has appointed experienced property developer Jitesh Patel to the new role of Development Manager. He will play an important role in delivering the Park’s accelerated development schedule driven by last year’s strategic partnership between Magdalen College and GIC. Jitesh joins from Kajima Partnerships where he worked on a variety of projects valued in excess of £200m, including health care centres and housing. He has a MSc in Facilities Management and BSc in Building Surveying.

Magdalen College Oxford, owner of The Oxford Science Park, and an affiliate of GIC entered into the strategic partnership in October 2021 to accelerate the development of Park. The multi-building development plan at TOSP will accommodate strong demand and future growth requirements of leading science and technology companies. Several state-of-the-art facilities are planned for TOSP’s 23 gross acres of development land, with the capacity to add at least a further 500,000 sq ft.

‘The Oxford Science Park’s exciting and ambitious development plans will cement its position as a leading location for innovative science and technology companies. Having worked in Oxfordshire earlier in my career, I’m delighted to return to help TOSP deliver on this vision.’, Jitesh Patel, Development Manager at TOSP, commented on his appointment.

Rory Maw, CEO of The Oxford Science Park, said, ‘We are delighted to appoint Jitesh to the new role of Development Manager as the Park continues to evolve. His expertise in leading complex construction and property development projects make him the ideal addition to our enlarged team.’
