Swansea BID

News and Events

A word from our CEO…

“I’ve had the pleasure of working at Swansea BID since 2009, and having led it through three of its four ballots, there is nothing I don’t know about what we’ve delivered over the last fifteen years. As we reach the halfway point of our fourth term, I wanted to take the time to look back at what our small team has delivered since we were voted in for a fourth time in 2021.

“Since the beginning of this term, I have focused on having a longer-term, more strategic view to help drive economic growth and investment in our City Centre, which is being driven through our multi-agency Invest In Swansea projects. 

“Our practical and tactical operations, which include cleansing, safety, and marketing the City effectively, continue to go from strength to strength. In this term, I have scaled up our established operating groups that include our members to ensure better measurability, and transparency around our projects, with the groups helping formulate our annual and longer-term plans.

“I also wanted to improve our informed decision-making by being more data focused. After forging strong relationships with our BID businesses, we have really got under the skin of our stakeholders and understand the needs of each business, so we can support them effectively through the business challenges they face.

“I want to thank my team and BID Board. The team works tirelessly to deliver for our businesses, and the Board volunteers their time to ensure we deliver our aims and objectives. I would also like to thank our levy payers for their continued support, enabling us to make a real difference and playing a key role as the area’s largest private sector lead and managed stakeholder, in building a vibrant and successful City Centre for generations to come.

“I’m excited to be leading the company and team through a Country record-breaking fifth term, should we be successful in 2026.”
