Poole BID has announced the appointment of Adam Keen as the new chairman for the organisation, and welcomes a new director to its management board.

Adam Keen, general manager of morebus, said: “I am honoured to have become the new chairman of the Poole BID – this is a very important time for the BID and I look forward to ensuring that the business plan is delivered to levy payers within the five-year term. Jonathan has been instrumental in leading the BID thus far, and I will relish the opportunity to take the reins and help plans develop further.”

In addition to this new appointment, Andy Byatt, owner of Titan Leathercraft, has joined the board as a director of Independent Retail. On joining the board, he said: “I’m looking forward to being a part of the board of directors and helping to shape the future of Poole’s high street, making it a progressive and lively place to live and trade.”

The Poole BID continues to be managed by Justin Hundley-Appleton, who took over the role in January of this year.

Justin added: “We’re positive that Adam will bring great leadership to the BID as we head towards the process of re-election in 2021. Jonathan Sibbett gave us a great start to the process and his knowledge and experience of Poole town centre has been valued by every one of us on the board.

“Andy’s experience working on Poole Quay provides us with valuable knowledge and his enthusiasm to get stuck in and help is greatly appreciated.”
