Connect Derby appoints new operations manager

Connect Derby, the managed workspace provider, has appointed Manjit Modare as operations manager.

Manjit joined Derby City Council in 2008 as an operations manager for the Council’s children’s centres, before becoming operational co-ordinator/business lead in 2012.

During her time there, she gained considerable experience in the field of facilities management and is skilled in the areas of health and safety, compliance and risk assessment.

In her new role at Connect Derby, she will be responsible for all building and operational matters across the seven buildings in the Connect Derby portfolio – from new builds at Friar Gate Studios, Sadler Bridge Studios and the iHub innovation centre on Infinity Park, to restored and refurbished buildings at Marble Hall, Riverside Chambers, Shot Tower and Kings Chambers.

Commenting on her appointment, Ann Bhatti, head of Connect Derby, said: “We’re excited to have Manjit on the team. She’s done fantastic work for Derby City Council over many years and we’re really looking forward to benefiting from all her experience and expertise.

“She already has a detailed understanding of the Council’s processes and policies from her work at the Children’s Centres and will now be applying them to the commercial managed workspace environment.”

Manjit added: “Ros Stacey did such a great job as operations manager and I hope to build on her work and continue to deliver a positive experience to the 198 businesses who occupy space across the seven Connect Derby buildings.

“In my previous role I built relationships with a wide range of contractors, which will prove beneficial to the Connect Derby team and workspace portfolio. I look forward to working on such a diverse range of buildings and delivering a first-class experience for tenants.”
