BID Board Sub-Groups

The Manchester BID Company is an independent, not-for-profit limited-by-guarantee company, governed by a Board.

The Board is made up of representatives from levy paying businesses alongside non-exec directors from stakeholders. The Chair is Jane Sharrocks, General Manager of Selfridges Exchange Square.

The Board has representatives from businesses within and outside the city’s shopping centre Manchester Arndale, alongside large retailers, the F&B sector, Manchester City Council and local landlord representation.

An officially constituted Finance Committee meets to make recommendations to the full Board and a number of Board Sub-Groups are each headed by a sector representative who sits on, and reports back, to the main Board.
