Michele Wilby

Board Member

Michele has spent a varied career meeting challenges as diverse as a PA to first tier directors of a multinational manufacturing firm; inward investment officer at Solihull MBC; press officer and managing the public interface for that Local Authority.  

It was her stint managing two town centres (Solihull and Shirley) that completed her preparation for her most challenging and enjoyable role so far: Chief Executive Officer at Colmore BID. The sheer breadth of projects her team gets involved in and the challenge of delivering those while still meeting value-for-money aspirations of the businesses in Birmingham’s commercial heart is the most wonderful work she's done in her professional life so far.  

Winning the Downtown Birmingham 2017 Woman of the Year was a proud moment underscoring the energy she puts into enriching the operating environment for Colmore businesses and also the BID winning various national awards for public realm work undertaken in the District.
