The chief executive of Millennium Point has announced he will be leaving the organisation at the end of October.
Philip Singleton will stand down from his role running Millennium Point Trust and Millennium Point Property and Judith Armstrong, chief operating officer, will fill in until a formal appointment is made.
Mr Singleton joined Millennium Point in March 2012 after previously working as assistant director, city centre development at Birmingham City Council and divisional director of major sites in the London borough of Newham.
He said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Millennium Point, which has been focused around transforming and developing the organisation. From the launch of our new brand to our increased liveliness as a host venue for a huge range of activities, we’ve intensified the use of our spectacular spaces to host large scale public events.
"What has been particularly rewarding is the collaboration with arts and cultural organisations, repositioning Millennium Point as a recognised institution in Birmingham.”
Simon Topman, chairman of Millennium Point Trust Board, said: “Philip’s arrival at Millennium Point was the beginning of a new era for us. Under his leadership new directions were found and the trust’s activities dramatically changed - all in the pursuit of our charitable goals.
"His pioneering work with a host of new partners has seen the whole place reinvigorated. He has made it exciting, always busy with innovative activity that has positioned Millennium Point as Eastside’s catalyst for the advancement of the entire area. He has built a great team to achieve all this and they will continue to deliver.
“Philip has left many legacies, all important to our future, most importantly a commercial drive to generate new and greater revenue streams to enable the charity to grow and achieve more.”
