Three new appointments for Chester-based heritage organisation
Chester based social enterprise Big Heritage have kicked off plans for “considerable growth” with three new strategic appointments.
Emma Stringfellow has been appointed as Director of Operations & Projects having been a non-executive director for the company since June. Emma was previously CEO of an international software company and brings over 25 years experience in programme and project delivery to the team.
Rebecca Mason has been appointed as a new Project Manager, and will be overseeing a number of new developments planned by the company. Rebecca has been appointed to the role after 16 years at Heritage Lottery Fund, and has a broad knowledge of the heritage sector across the region and beyond.
In addition, Bryony Fisher joins the company permanently after completing a successful Santander internship. Bryony has recently completed a degree in archaeology at the University of Chester.
Big Heritage founder and MD, Dean Paton said: “It’s an exciting time for Big Heritage. We have some major announcements to make in coming weeks, and will be rolling out a number of multi-million pound initiatives over the next three years. We are delighted to have secured three talented members of the team to help drive this growth. Emma and Rebecca add real depth of experience, whilst Bryony’s internship showed her to be an industrious and bright prospect we were keen to keep hold of.”
The appointments mark the end of a busy summer for the company, delivering Europe’s first Pokémon GO festival in partnership with San Francisco based company Niantic Inc. The event saw over 16,000 visitors descend on Chester to catch Pokémon in a unique combination of gaming and heritage engagement.
