Say hello to four Westside influencers who have become new BID director

A high-powered group of directors has joined the ranks at Westside BID, bringing a wealth of new experience to the senior team.

The BID’s directors, who together make up the leadership board, are comprised of a variety of key influencers from hospitality, retail, banking and leisure.

And the four new directors who have just been added will greatly add to that expertise as the BID looks positively towards the future.

The new directors are John Angus, managing director of the Park Regis hotel, Debbie Challoner, manager of the Sainsbury’s store in Brindley Place, Alex Hough, community manager of Alpha Works, and Matt Rudd, Grosvenor Casino general manager.

Mr Angus, who is also chairman of the Birmingham Hoteliers’ Association, said: “I have worked within the district at the Park Regis hotel for several years and I am pleased to bring my knowledge to the board to help develop the travel and tourism sector within the district.”

Ms Challoner said: “I have worked within the area for over a year and I have seen the many benefits of the street wardens and other BID services on a daily basis. The additional features the BID provides helps to keep the area clean and safe.”

Mr Hough said: “I’m extremely pleased to be joining the Westside BID team. They do great work within the area and I’m pleased to be a part of it and help watch the district continue to develop.”

And Mr Rudd added: “I have worked within the Westside district for 19 years and have watched the area grow from strength to strength. I’m pleased to be joining the board and being a part of the Westside team.”

The group of new directors has been welcomed to the board by Mike Olley, Westside BID general manager. He said: “Having these new faces will help to bring a diverse range of knowledge, expertise and experience. We are really looking forward to working with them.”
