Chief Executive, Heart of London Business Alliance
Ros has almost 20 years’ experience in delivering successful destinations and is a leading figure in London and the Business Improvement District (BID) Industry. Leading successive organisations including Kingston First and Croydon BID, Ros joined Heart of London Business Alliance (HOLBA) in 2016. Through her leadership, Ros has produced award-winning teams, driving measurable results and real return on investment for businesses and investors. In 2020, her dynamism and depth of experience secured HOLBA another 5-year mandate, with 96% of businesses voting in support, making it the first BID to achieve four simultaneous ballot wins, as well as the first BID in the UK to run a property owner and occupier ballot concurrently. Ros is co-chair of the London Workplace Recovery Board, formed in 2021 to better understand the drivers and barriers for returning to the workplace and to support the immediate needs and long-term recovery of Central London businesses. She is also a Night Time Commissioner for the Greater London Authority and has recently joined the New London Sounding Board, established by New London Architecture. As the global economy faces a new set of challenges, Ros is dedicated to securing the future of London’s West End as a vibrant and economically sustainable world-class destination of culture and commerce.
