All About Hitchin
New BID Manager
The torch is passing to a new generation and the BID team couldn’t be more delighted. With the unfortunate withdrawal of Fiona Cookson at the beginning of December, the BID Directors took swift and immediate action and were able to secure the services of Tom Hardy. Tom is a rising star in Hertfordshire BID and town management with experience in both Hertford and Letchworth and the whole team is thrilled with the appointment. Tom personifies the next stages in the town’s evolution with its changing demographic; respectful of the heritage and history, he recognises that there is a growing number of young entrepreneurs who are as passionate about their town as those of us who have been around for decades! Drawing on the enthusiasm of the younger members and the counsel of those who have been involved for a number of years, Tom is confident that he can establish a strong campaign for the BID Renewal ballot in early 2019 and through discussion with the levy payers, publish an exciting programme for the following five years.
Keith Hoskins said ‘ look forward a great deal to working with him in the coming year to pass on some of the experience that I’ve amassed since 1997 and helping to ensure a smooth transition. I’m still around working on projects for Hitchin Initiative so not too far away for questions!!’
