// Boxpark founder Roger Wade to step down as CEO
// Wade will hand over the reins to Boxpark’s current managing director Simon Champion
Boxpark founder Roger Wade has revealed that he will step down as chief executive after 10 years.
Wade will hand over the reins to Boxpark’s current managing director Simon Champion, who will be supported by chief operating officer Ben McLaughlin.
Wade is leaving office at the end of this month, and will assume his new position as Brand Consultant and Non-Executive Director.
He remains a significant shareholder in the business alongside LDC which invested in the business in 2021.
The company aims to complete its expansion plans of rolling out a mixture of 10 Boxpark and BoxHall sites in the next five years, with the support of investment partner LDC.
Wade said: “It’s been a great ride over the past 10 years but it’s time to jump off and explore new opportunities. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me on this incredible journey but most of all I would like to thank my wonderful team and family for their support.”
