Millennium Point, Birmingham Eastside’s event and office destination has appointed all female executive team members for the first time.
Millennium Point is 46,451sqm anchor building, which overlooks Eastside Park has appointed Abigail Vlahakis as finance director and Rebecca Delmore as commercial director. They join chief executive Judith Armstrong and head of people, learning and development, Vanessa Currie. The new appointments in the house of Millennium Point follow calls by Judith Armstrong earlier this year for more women to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Millennium Point also recently hosted the visit by HRH Prince Harry and Miss Meghan Markle coinciding with International Women’s Day.
Vlahakis was earlier the senior tax manager at KPMG in Birmingham, while Delmore was previously director of group sales for 5Ways Hospitality, which included the opening of Park Regis Birmingham.
Armstrong said that as a venue and destination which is dedicated in supporting STEM, and as keen exponents of attracting more women into senior positions.
The business profits from Millennium Point’s commercial activities in the building are used to fund organisations, projects and initiatives with interests in STEM.
During the past four years, Millennium Point Trust has donated more than £4m to support STEM initiatives.
