Liverpool 2008 Chief Executive appointed
The Executive Group of the Liverpool Culture Company Board today (Friday 24 March) announced the appointment of Jason Harborow as its Chief Executive.
36-year-old Mr Harborow has been the Culture Company's Chief Operating Officer for more than a year and will take up his new post from 1 April 2006.
Mr Harborow will be responsible for managing the delivery of a host of events and programmes between now and European Capital of Culture in 2008.
Welcoming Mr Harborow's appointment, Professor Drummond Bone, Chairman of the Liverpool Culture Company, said: "I'm very pleased that Jason has agreed to accept the unique challenges that go with this high-profile post. His strategic vision for the company alongside his proven ability to manage it on a day-to-day basis and his knowledge of the city will be a great advantage."
Cllr Warren Bradley, Leader of Liverpool City Council, said: "Jason has been instrumental in ensuring the Liverpool Culture Company is in the best possible position to maximise the opportunities 2008 represents. His ability to work with both the private and public sectors at all levels and his desire to succeed will be of immense benefit to the city for many years beyond 2008."
Jason Harborow said: "I'm delighted and honoured to accept this role. I'm particularly proud that we have such a good team in place for achieving the city's ambition of staging the best-ever European Capital of Culture. We're all firmly focused on delivering for Liverpool, the region and the UK."

Whoever is reesponsible for those crap street banners along Edge Lane and Speke Boulevard should be taken out and given a good kicking (and then given a huge pay-off of course). They are utterly disgraceful. Flimsy, dull, unreadable, tattered, cheap and nasty. They are unlikely to see the New Year in, never mind last all the way through 2008. How can the Culture Company fuck such simple things up so badly - and who is responsible? Look of the city? Fuck-up of the city more likely.

What a load of bollocks they all said Everyone knows Warren did not want JH to get the position in fact they originally gave him the title interim CEO, but the childish tosser spat his dummy out and went home refusing to come into work until they gave him the full title.
So they relented demonstrating the fact that they are weak simpl minded buffoons.
