Manchester Central appoints new Chair

John Early has stepped down as Chairman of Manchester Central after 12 years.  
Early, founding partner of Genr8 Developments – a specialist mixed-use urban regeneration company, helped steer the venue through a major redevelopment and rebranding project; when the city’s dedicated exhibition venue was combined with its international conference centre to become Manchester Central; which has since been recognised as a world leading convention centre.

Charlie Cornish, Chief Executive of Manchester Airport Group (MAG), is to succeed Early after joining the Board in 2015.  

Angie Robinson, CEO of Manchester Central, said: “John has played a significant role in shaping Manchester Central into the world class venue it is today. Although we are sad to see him step down, Charlie’s appointment provides us with a great opportunity to further establish our position within the city and work even closer with other leading businesses to develop our offer.”
