New manager for St Ives BID

Sarah Stevens and Helen Tripconey

The St Ives Business Improvement District (BID) has appointed a new manager.

Sarah Stevens, who is also chair of the St Ives Town Deal board, assumes the position from Helen Tripconey, who was appointed BID manager in August 2019, shortly after St Ives BID’s second five-year term was approved

“I’m looking forward to getting going,” she said, “and I see the position as an opportunity to use my knowledge and expertise to benefit my home town.

“My voluntary role on St Ives Town Deal board focuses on regeneration, transport, training, skills and sustainable economic growth and this, combined with the excellent work Helen has already done, will continue to improve things for St Ives.

“I will offer a new perspective and vision, and I bring commitment, enthusiasm and drive to the role. I will work with local partners and stakeholders to find new ways of doing things, secure new sources of funding, and deliver effective lobbying for the benefit of local businesses – and hopefully have fun along the way!”
