Ten from the Decade – 3rd Sir Howard Bernstein

Ten from the Decade – 3rd Sir Howard Bernstein

Sir Howard was a supporter of Downtown
long before the brand was established in Manchester. He spoke at Downtown
events in Liverpool and Preston on several occasions before encouraging Frank
McKenna to set up shop in his city. Throughout the past decade he has cemented
his reputation as one of the most talented and entrepreneurial local authority
chief executives in the country. Building on the success of the Commonwealth
Games in 2004, Manchester has become widely recognised as the leading
provincial city in the UK. The growth of the airport, the acquisition of
Stanstead, the Spinningfields development, the establishment of the Manchester
International Festival and the regeneration of East Manchester on the back of
the City’s Dubai investors are just a few of the highlights in recent times. On
a personal level, Bernstein’s tireless work ethic on Manchester’s behalf, and
his insatiable appetite to deliver the next initiative, meet the next investor,
and support the Manchester ‘family’, marks him out as a unique talent that any
city would be proud and lucky to have.
