Mansfield Business Improvement District (BID) has appointed a new Chief Executive.
Nikki Rolls has been appointed to head up Mansfield BID. Her previous experience includes: stakeholder partnership development, community safety initiatives, delivering events, marketing strategies, and developing and delivering environmental and public realm improvements.
She has also worked on the regeneration of a number of strategic town centres, setting up a number of town centre partnerships, and securing vital investment in the continued development of strategies that result in the reduction in the number of vacant units
Commenting on the new post, Nikki says: “The BID in Mansfield has been an extremely proactive organisation in the town centre, working with partners such as the local authorities and the businesses on a number of initiatives that have really made a difference.
“In fact, I have never come across a BID that does as much as Mansfield does for its levy payers. One of my first aims is to get the BID officially accredited for what it does. I am confident that this can happen and that the BID will become one of just 30 out of 205 across the UK to have this recognition.
She adds: “My key role is to take the BID forward, using the foundation it has already built. I will be working on a strategic vision for the town centre, in particular the public realm areas (community spaces), attracting more national inward investment and the potential regeneration sites.”
Nikki is one of just 45 BID managers to have worked towards, and gained, a certificate in BID management.
Mansfield BID Chairman John Sankey says: “Nikki has a wealth of experience in working in town centre regeneration and promotion, and has a track record of getting results. She’s a logical thinker with a can do attitude, and that’s exactly what we need in Mansfield.”
