Go! Southampton begins search for an inspiring CEO

Go! Southampton has started its search for a CEO to lead and deliver our vision for the future of Southampton City Centre.

No city can prosper without a thriving centre – a place where businesses can flourish, residents can find products and services they need, and cultural opportunities are many and varied. That is why businesses in Southampton City Centre are creating a Business Improvement District – an organisation owned, led and funded by local business with the long-term goal of creating a world-class City Centre. With an emphatic yes vote from businesses in November, an exciting opportunity has arisen for a leader of the highest calibre to be at the head of this ambitious organisation.

Go! Southampton starts work on 1st April 2017 following a strong vote in favour in November 2016. The BID brings together a wide cross section of businesses from high street retailers and independent shops to world-class cultural facilities, offices of major corporates, and the maritime industry.
