Introducing Andrew and Ngunan

Andrew has over 14 years’ experience working across the North West property market. He is currently working at CBRE, where he acts for several landlord and occupier clients. Through his work and living locally, Andrew understands Liverpool City Region’s economy and is passionate about seeing our sector grow.

Ngunan is an experienced journalist with a background in the arts. Ngunan set up her peer-to-peer organisation, iWoman Academy CIC, to empower, entertain, and inspire women globally. She also produces and presents BBC Radio Merseyside’s popular African Caribbean magazine show, ‘Upfront’. Ngunan currently sits on several boards championing diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Dr. Fiona Armstrong-Gibbs, chair of the Baltic Creative board said:

The addition of Andrew and Ngunan to our board is really exciting! They are well respected in the region and bring a fresh perspective as we refocus on our purpose. Andrew’s experience in commercial property is incredibly valuable as we hope to expand our portfolio, and Ngunan’s leadership and entrepreneurial approach in the creative and digital sector will bring huge benefits to our community. We’re going into the last part of 2022 in a great position, with a diverse, talented, and experienced board. We can’t wait to see what the next year brings!

A group of experienced board members from the region’s creative and digital community oversees Baltic Creative’s leadership. In addition to driving the business forward, they provide strategic advice and oversee how generated funds are reinvested into the digital, creative, and technology sectors. The appointment of Andrew Byrne and Ngunan Adamu brings the total number of directors to nine.
