New CEO announced for Royal Tunbridge Wells Together BID


Royal Tunbridge Wells Together Business Improvement District (BID) have announced the appointment of Alex Green as the new BID CEO.

Alex Green was formerly the Chief Executive Officer of local cultural destination Trinity Theatre and had previously been involved in a voluntary capacity within the BID for a number of years.

He then stepped in to act as Interim BID Director following the departure of Sarah-Jane Adams.

Mr Green will take responsibility for delivering the RTW Together BID objectives set out in the organisation’s plan to “support Royal Tunbridge Wells businesses to thrive”.

Of his appointment, he said: “I am thrilled to have been appointed the new BID CEO and look forward to working with our levy-payers to ensure they feel invested in, to support their working environment and to increase our activities and campaigns to generate them more business.”

The BID Board has also recently welcomed the appointment of four new voluntary Board members to the team: Clare Waller, Co-Owner of Jeremy’s Home Store; Nicola Paffard, Partner and Head of Legal Support Services at Cripps; Alexia Taylor of Walsh Bros; and Justine Rutland, Cabinet Member for Tunbridge Wells Town and Local Areas. Alex Greig, Owner of Fuggles Beer Café, who has served on the board since its inception and recently led the Board as Acting Chair, has taken up the role of Chair.

RTW Together BID was formed in 2019 after a ‘Yes’ vote from local businesses to create a Business Improvement District. It will currently run until March 2024, at which point there will be a new opportunity to vote on the future of the BID for Royal Tunbridge Wells. The RTW BID is a not-for-profit organisation that is funded by and represents businesses in Tunbridge Wells town centre within the defined BID area. These businesses within the BID footprint contribute an annual levy based on the rateable value of the premises.

RTW Together is then tasked with utilising the funds to deliver projects and activities that are designed to support the business community and improve the trading environment. Their aim is to promote the area and increase footfall through events and marketing campaigns, and to provide services, such as business training, street scene improvements and safety support.

Key upcoming initiatives include a town-wide celebration to mark the Coronation of King Charles III on May 6; extensive new promotional and advertising campaigns; a new unlimited online training scheme for levy payers; an upcoming relaunch of the BID grant schemes; new street scene initiatives, and much more.
