New BID Chair

Nigel Huxley, has been elected nh005a (533x800)as the new chairman for the Bath Business Improvement District.  Nigel is the Head of Waitrose in Bath and replaces Simon Pullen of Southgate Bath, who was appointed in 2011.  Simon remains a director of the BID in the short term representing SouthGate but has stepped down as Chair as a consequence of moving employment outside of Bath.

Since 2010, Nigel has been actively involved in the city and the Business Improvement District (BID), sitting both on the BID marketing committee and contributing as a BID Board Director.

We are delighted that the board has appointed Nigel to take on this role and as an already active BID member we know he brings enthusiasm, positive influence and new ideas to the Bath BID.

Nigel Huxley said “I am delighted to have been elected as Chair by my colleagues on the Bath BID Board. The BID has been doing some great work in the City throughout its first term, and Iintend to keep the focus firmly on working collaboratively to enhance our trading environment, and driving footfall to our fantastic businesses via our existing priorities. At the same time I will be encouraging new ideas in a critical phase for the Bath BID as we seek the endorsement of businesses through our renewal.”

The Bath BID chairman was elected by the BID Board by ballot on Friday 20th March 2015.
