Barbican General Manager Succession Planning Begins
Anthony Hyde has informed the Barbican of his intention to step down as General Manager on 7 February, 2014.
The process of replacing the role is being led by Chief Operating and Financial Officer Sandeep Dwesar. Further details will be announced in due course.
Hyde joined the Barbican in 2001 as Business Development Manager. Since then he has risen to the role of General Manager of Barbican Business Events. During his time at the Barbican he has significantly grown the Centre’s presence and commercial offering, particularly in the meetings and events sectors. Under Anthony’s leadership the 2012/2013 financial year achieved record breaking sales and profitability – allowing the Business Events team to significantly support the Barbican’s programme of world class arts and learning.
Sandeep Dwesar said: “Anthony has transformed the Barbican’s commercial offering during his time in charge of Barbican Business Events. His impact goes beyond the organisation’s commercial success to include significant changes to the way we work, such as the establishment of close links to the Barbican’s artistic and creative learning departments. These changes have led to a whole new offering from the Barbican, allowing us to influence not just the physical space where an event takes place but also an event’s content, creativity, learning outcomes and return on investment. Anthony remains in charge of the Barbican Business Events team and we will continue working closely together during the coming months.”
Anthony Hyde leaves the Barbican to pursue other projects within the meetings and events sector.
