Lincoln Business Improvement Group launches search for new chief executive

Lincoln BIG

Lincoln BIG (Business Improvement Group) has launched its search for a new chief executive.

The successful candidate will be challenged with taking the city’s business improvement district (BID) into its fourth term and beyond.

The move follows the current chief executive Matt Corrigan’s decision to step down at the end of this year. It also comes at a time when Lincoln continues to attract massive investment, on the higher education, retail, leisure and tourism fronts.

The new chief executive, who can expect to be paid in the region of £50,000, will be tasked with helping to develop a clear vision and identity for Lincoln.

Commenting on his decision to leave his position as CEO of Lincoln BIG, Corrigan said: “Whilst I have decided to step down my post at the end of the year, I am happy to have an informal chat with potential applicants who would like to know more about what this job entails.”

They will not only understand the BID concept, but be capable of balancing the needs of Lincoln BIG’s levy payers with those of other stakeholders – and be happy to work in partnership with a variety of outside organisations.

The company has an annual turnover more than £1 million and employs more than 15 people. The committed team works hard in a variety of diverse ways to help to make the city as vibrant, attractive and economically successful as possible.
