Share on LinkedIn Email Print View
Harrogate International Centre (HIC) has appointed three new non-executive directors to its Board.

The new recruits are: Pinsent Masons Solicitor Nigel McClea, who is also the chair of Marketing Leeds; Maggie Punyer who has a 30-year history in the exhibition and conference agency and procurement market; and Richard Taylor, a founding member of the global fish and chip brand Harry Ramsden.

The appointments come as the HIC gears up for the launch of its two new event halls, due to come online later this year. The £13m expansion plan is being funded by regional development agency Yorkshire Forward and Harrogate Borough Council.

“In a time of significant change, and fluid and volatile economic markets, we are delighted to welcome Nigel, Maggie and Richard to the Board of HIC and look forward to the significant contribution they are likely to give to HIC as a business and Harrogate as a destination,” HIC director Angus Houston said. “These are extremely exciting times for HIC, with the new exhibition hall development coming on stream shortly, alongside some fundamental strategic changes to our business model.”

Leader of Harrogate Borough Council and chair of the HIC Board Don Mackenzie, also highlighted the significance of the new appointments.

“Each new director has a proven record of success, which we are delighted to bring into the HIC at this time of challenge,” he said.

The HIC claims to have contributed £180m to the local economy during the 2010/2011 financial year.
