Roz Bird

Commercial Director, MEPC Silverstone Park

Following property developer, MEPC’s, acquisition of 131 acres of development land around the Silverstone Circuit in 2014, Roz became Commercial Director of Silverstone Park, and in 2015, a member of the MEPC Executive Committee.

Roz has driven forward MEPC’s plans for Silverstone Park, including the development of a number of speculative industrial schemes, achieving Enterprise Zone status for the area and a new planning consent for 2.1m sq ft. This is being complemented by a growing number of high-tech business networking events and a sports and social programme.

In 2016, Roz worked with local partners to launch the Silverstone Technology Cluster, now recognised by government as an important high-tech cluster with ‘latent potential’, and in the same year Roz formed a partnership with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence to create the UK’s only dedicated sub-contract inspection metrology facility.

Commenting on the impact of Silverstone Park, Roz says that the business is “creating compelling environments to help companies to flourish”.
