Event Description:

As Corporate Director for Economy at Birmingham City Council, Waheed has worked for the local authority in various roles for just under 20 years.

Waheed is responsible for providing strategic leadership and direction across a wide portfolio, including the City Council’s property portfolio, planning, regeneration, housing development, transportation and connectivity, highways and infrastructure, skills and employment, and business development and inward investment.

Waheed has led the major transformation of the city centre through the Big City Plan, bringing forward key projects such as Birmingham Smithfield, the redevelopment of Snowhill, Paradise and New Street. He oversees £2.5bn of public sector investment in the city through the Enterprise Zone and HS2 Curzon masterplan. 

Alongside leading Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust, which is one of the city’s largest house builders, Waheed has also led the Council to set up a series of commercial vehicles including In Reach, the Council’s vehicle for building new homes across the city, and more recently the development of an investment vehicle for commercial property to help deliver growth.

Waheed is a non-executive Director of Birmingham Airport Holdings Limited.

Waheed is a regular columnist for Estates Gazette, and is also a visiting Professor at Birmingham City University, alongside being a mentor to a number of graduates demonstrating his commitment to support the development of future professionals in the field.

Waheed was awarded an honorary Doctorate by Aston University in July 2017.
