Birmingham Post has listed THSH's CEO, Nick Reed and Chair, Anita Bhalla OBE amongst the region's most influential people - selected by a panel of senior Birmingham Post editorial staff. Paul Faulkner, who sits on the Board as Vice Chairman, also features on the list published today.
This is the second Birmingham Post Power 250 supplement, which celebrates the 250 most influential and powerful people in the West Midlands.
Power and influence are difficult to define. There are obvious choices - those who hold high office in business, organisations or public life. But there are also those who achieve their influence through force of argument or being role models that people want to follow. Birmingham Post
Nick Reed was appointed as Chief Executive to Performances Birmingham, the charity responsible for running Town Hall and Symphony Hall, in August 2015.
It is humbling to feature in this list; but more than that, for THSH to have three senior persons amongst West Midlands colleagues in Birmingham Post’s Power 250 supplement is testament to the incredible work THSH does, not just at these two iconic venues, but across the city connecting people to live music.Nick Reed, Chief Executive Officer
The THSH trio feature in Birmingham Post's list, published today, alongside other cultural leaders in the West Midlands including Birmingham Hippodrome's Fiona Allen; Coventry City of Culture Trust's David Burbage CBE and Laura McMillan; RSC's Gregory Doran; mac Birmingham's Deborah Kermode; CBSO's Stephen Maddock OBE and Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla; Birmingham Royal Ballet's Jan Teo; Ikon Gallery's Jonathan Watkins; Culture Central's Gary Topp; and Royal Birmingham Conservatoire's Julian Lloyd Webber.
With the new-look Centenary Square, tram extension and HSBC head office all under construction on their doorsteps, Town Hall and Symphony Hall find themselves at the epicenter of a new and exciting chapter in Birmingham's development.Birmingham Post
