Key Coventrian Continues Commitment to Raising the City’s Profile in Partnership with Coventry BID
Michael, who is a Coventry native, previously worked for Coventry Cathedral, the Armonico Consort and has also freelanced for a range of charities. He joined Coventry University as its Head of Development and Alumni in 2012 before being seconded to Coventry 2021 as Fundraising Director.
It was here that Michael supported the winning bid, generating more than £4m for the campaign. His hard work and dedication resulted in him being awarded an MBE in 2018, further securing his excellent reputation within the city.
In Michael’s new role as Sponsorship Advisor for Coventry BID, he will be focussing on linking the upcoming BID events programme with businesses in the region, giving them an opportunity to support some of the amazing things going on in the city ahead of 2021.
Michael Mogan, MBE, commented: “As someone who is a proud Coventrian and father of eight-year-old twins, I have always been a big fan of what Trish and the BID team have done in the city. When the opportunity to work with them came up, it was too good to pass up!
“I am incredibly excited to get stuck into my new role and help build awareness and support for Coventry and its businesses as the year progresses.”
Trish Willetts, Coventry BID Director, added: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Michael on board! The opportunity to keep his knowledge and experience within the city and continue to grow our programme of events is invaluable.
“All eyes are on our wonderful city in the lead-up to 2021 and we’re excited to bring the wow factor to our great city this year, whilst also working closely with our friends at the Council and City of Culture teams to support their initiatives.”
Announcements about upcoming events in the city throughout 2020 will be made via the Coventry City Centre social media channels.
