Governance

Board of Directors

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

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 Manchester Exchange Square.

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

The Manchester BID Board meets four times a year. A number of ‘Sector Groups’ meet, each led by a business representative who then sits on, and reports back, to the main Board:

  • Jewellery Sector Group
  • Financial Services Sector Group
  • Operations Sector Group
  • Major Stores Sector Group
  • Events & Marketing Sector Group
  • Food & Beverage Sector Group

In addition, an officially constituted Finance Committee meets and makes recommendations to the main Board.
