Wed 5th Jun 2019

by Broadway Cinema

Broadway has today announced the appointment of a new Chair. Paul Southby will be taking over from the outgoing Fred Brookes. Paul is a lawyer at Geldards LLP and also Chairman of Marketing NG. He brings with him a wealth of experience of commercial law as well as an invaluable understanding of engaging with decision-makers in Nottingham.

Work Announcements

“I am able to hand over to my successor a company in an excellent state, thanks to the unrivalled efforts and commitment of our CEO and staff team, the support of funders for our wide range of developmental work across the Midlands, and most of all the invaluable support of our appreciative and ever-growing customers across the city and the wider region. The board I have had the privilege to chair has been a solid support and close critical friend to Broadway throughout that time, and I have no doubt that under the hand of my successor, chosen through a rigorous appointment process, it will continue to be so.”

Fred Brookes

“I am excited to join the team at Broadway, which I have always seen not only as the beating heart of Nottingham’s Lace Market area and a pivotal component in the city’s cultural offer, but also as a cultural asset of national importance. I look forward to working with all the team and supporting Broadway through the next phase of its development and beyond.”

Paul Southby
