Hargreaves, who is deputy head of sales at the Barbican, replaces outgoing London City Selection chair Ed Bolling. He will be supported by new vice chair Rob Harris, commercial events sales executive of the London Stock Exchange.  

New members of the board include Rowan Bennett of the HAC, Paul Martins of Cavendish Venues, Simon Kane of One Moorgate Place and Rachel Loynes of Bishopsgate Institute. Lorraine Butler from Middle Temple remains on the board but will take up a new role as membership chair.

Outgoing chair Bolling from Ironmonger’s Hall, former Secretariat Theresa Thompson of the Barbican Centre and Georgie Smith from Sadler’s Wells will all remain on the board.

Hargreaves says: "I have been involved with London City Selection on behalf of Barbican Centre for a number of years and have witnessed first hand the organic growth of the collective and the benefits it offers members.

"With a refreshed brand and new website this year which is already delivering significantly more enquiries for members, I am looking forward to working with the new board and members to develop London City Selection further in 2016."
