Vanessa Wood

Vanessa Wood, centre manager

I joined as centre manager when Business Central was just a building site and have seen it flourish to the state of the art office space it is today. I have welcomed an array of businesses since we first opened in April 2014 and have enjoyed overseeing the growth of our business community. The BIC team is very much focused on creating a community, a centre for people not just to work from but to feel an alliance to and this is something that I am confident we have replicated here.

Having previously worked as operations director I have a wealth of experience dealing with business space and facilities. It’s great getting to know the businesses that locate here and I take pride in ensuring everything is working efficiently for them. I am excited to be working in this new facility and I love to welcome and work with businesses joining our community.

Margaret Binns, services executive

I have seven years’ experience as a receptionist/administrator and am delighted to be part of the Business Central team. I can usually be found giving guests a warm welcome at reception and showing off our fabulous office space and meeting room facilities. I love interacting and meeting new people so do come and say hello when you visit. I see so many people come through the doors here and getting to know what they do is something that always interests me.
