Liverpool Lighthouse has a new COO
Updated: Jul 28
Liverpool Lighthouse welcomes new COO, Neil Newton, an award-winning radio presenter who began his career at the tender age of 13 commenting on the Grand National meeting at Aintree for the BBC.
A belt full of experiences from working with homeless young people in Midlands, being news editor at Southport radio station Dune FM, working with disadvantaged communities across Wirral, columnist with the Liverpool Echo group for over 9 years, hosted the Olympic flame and gained a space in the Guinness book of Records twice for compering the world’s biggest human poppy in memory of the World War 1 and a giant Olympic rings formation.
Neil could not be more ready to join Liverpool Lighthouse at an exciting time, managing a highly committed and experienced team of project managers, workers and volunteers.
‘The trustees of Liverpool Lighthouse are excited by the appointment of Neil to this newly created post of Chief Operating Officer to take the organisation into the next phase of its work, serving not just Anfield but the whole of our Liverpool City Region and beyond. He comes to us with a range of skills and experiences that we believe will breathe new life into our organisation particularly at such a time as this.’
Dr Tani Omideyi (Chair of Trustees, Liverpool Lighthouse)
