Manager wins bid to occupy Hotseat
NEXT up in the Hotseat, our regular column where prominent local people answer readers’ questions, will be InSwindon BID manager Rebecca Rowland.
Rebecca replaced Simon Jackson, the former chief executive, in June last year after his almost five years at the helm.
She works alongside the BID investors to build Swindon’s economic prosperity for the future by creating the right environment for all Swindon town centre’s businesses to perform better.
Rebecca has extensive knowledge of BID companies and was part of the team which successfully led the renewal of the ballot in 2012. Previous events in which InSwindon was involved include the celebrations in Wharf Green for the Olympic torch visiting the town and the Christmas lights switch-on, which saw an estimated 28,000 people pack the town centre to see X Factor star Jahmene Douglas and other local celebrities.
