WEYMOUTH Business Improvement District (BID) has announced who will be taking the reins over from the outgoing operations manager.

With Claudia Webb leaving the BID at the end of the year, Dawn Rondeau will be taking over the role.

The move was announced by Chris Truscott, chairman of We Are Weymouth, who said: "On behalf of the We Are Weymouth Board I am delighted to announce that we have appointed Dawn Rondeau to the position of operations manager.

"Dawn has a range of knowledge and business skills (most recently with Dorset Growth Hub and as a Business Consultant) and will most certainly be an asset to the team. She has demonstrated throughout her career the ability to work successfully in different environments. We look forward to working with her to further improve We Are Weymouth.

"Dawn will be starting her new role on 5th January 2021 but will be spending some time with Claudia beforehand to ensure an efficient handover.

"We are very appreciative of all the hard work that Claudia has done for us over the last three years and she will be missed. Claudia has played an integral role at the BID and I would personally like to wish her the best of success in all future endeavours."
