Gavin Stewart
BHEP Executive Director
CEO Brilliant Brighton

Director: Forbes Stewart Ltd

Gavin Stewart runs his own Management Consultancy, Forbes Stewart Ltd (FSLtd).  FSLtd currently holds two major contracts, one it to deliver the Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership, and the other is to run the city’s only Business Improvement District, Brilliant Brighton; a group of 517 retail and leisure sector businesses which invest £2m to support the economic success of Brighton City Centre. FSLtd also provides small project support to Brighton & Hove City Council, largely around Town Centre Management initiatives.

As well as this he is a visiting lecturer for the University of Brighton and sits on the Management boards for the Brighton Business Crime Reduction Partnership, The Coast to Capital Partnership Board, The Transport Partnership, the Learning and Skills Partnership and Brighton & Hove Connected amongst others.

Gavin says. “There’s a lot to love about Brighton & Hove, but there’s also a lot that needs to be done to create a stronger economy that will benefit everyone in our community.  From housing and skills, to  transport and IT; it’s imperative that the private, public and third sectors all work in partnership to build a city fit for the future.  I’m excited to be a part of that debate; helping to put the strategic thinking in to real life projects that can mean real change for our myriad businesses and residents.”
