We are delighted to announce that Steve Bluff has been appointed the new Broadmead BID manager, to replace Jo Hawkins. He will start his new role on 2 January 2019 and is looking forward to working with all BID levy payers.
Steve has had strong links to the retail scene in Bristol over many years. Following a relocation from London in the mid 1990’s with House of Fraser, he originally managed the Dingles department store in Clifton and then, in between several head office roles, took up the role of General Manager for the relocated House of Fraser store in Broadmead.
During this time he was an active member of the Broadmead Board supporting the plans to redevelop the city centre shopping experience and then ultimately as part of his Regional Director role was responsible for the operations and performance of the Cabot Circus store from its launch in 2008.
More recently Steve has held senior leadership roles with Crabtree and Evelyn, Event Network, a visitor attraction retail specialist and Nuffield Health. Since 2017 Steve has been a business coach and consultant and has been involved in delivering training workshops within the city and supporting local retailers and businesses to improve sales and operations.
