Freya claims key role with Business Centre Association
17th June 2015
Freya Cross. The Deep’s Business and Corporate Manager, has made a return to the national board of the Business Centre Association (BCA).
Freya, whose responsibilities have ranged from looking after the needs of hundreds of corporate clients to hosting a leg of the Olympic Torch Relay Cross, has spent the last 15 years at The Deep and previously served on the BCA board from 2004 until 2006.
Freya’s day-to-day role involves overseeing the needs of 45 clients employing upwards of 200 people in The Deep Business Centre, which since 2001 has supported nearly 120 fledgling businesses with only eight failures.
She also leads on promoting facilities at The Deep for corporate events and for special occasions ranging from weddings to the Olympic Torch Relay, the Queen’s Baton Relay for the Commonwealth Games and the draw live on BBC TV for the Third Round of the FA Cup.
Freya, who has worked on supporting businesses in Hull and East Yorkshire for 25 years, said: “I am delighted to be returning to the board of the BCA, which plays a key part in promoting the interests of its members to government, local authorities and the wider business community.
“The BCA also acts as a market place for businesses and that is exactly what we do here, bringing our clients together and encouraging them to work with each other. That is one reason why our failure rate for fledgling businesses is so low.
“Our team also gives our clients strong links to a vast network of contacts and demonstrates total dedication to business clients whether they occupy 4,000 square feet or a virtual office, and whether they are a one-man technology start-up or Siemens, who chose us for the event to launch their multi-billion pound Humber renewables project.”
The BCA represents more than 1,500 member locations operating across the UK. The board oversees the BCA’s work in promoting the use of business centres and creating an environment in which they can perform strongly. The Association has been at the forefront of the campaign to review business rates, lobbying government on behalf of members and customers.
