Boxpark appoints new chairman

Boxpark recently announced that Paul Thandi CBE has been appointed as its new independent non-executive chairman. Having been chief executive officer of the NEC Group for the past 16 years, he has also stepped into the position of chairman of that business.

Thandi will succeed John Leslie, who has been an adviser to Boxpark since 2016 and served as non-executive chairman since September 2021. During this time the business has grown to over 250 employees, generating revenue of £19m in the year to April 2022.

Simon Champion, chief executive officer of Boxpark, said: “Over the last 12 months, our senior leadership team and the board have strengthened, so it’s a great time to welcome a new chairman. Celebrating this new appointment, I would also like to thank John Leslie for his incredible contribution over the last seven years.”
