Chief Executive of QUAD to lead Bid for UK City of Culture


Chief Executive of QUAD, Adam Buss, has been appointed as interim bid director, leading Derby’s pursuit to be named UK City of Culture 2025.

In his new role, Adam will aim to maximise the opportunities to bring the city together and create a platform for development, no matter what the outcome of the 2025 shortlisting is.

As the birthplace of the industrial revolution, site of the world’s first factory and a leader of the English enlightenment, Derby is a city that has always had creativity and innovation at its heart, sparking new ideas and developing pioneering technologies.

The City of Culture bid will pay tribute to the past but build excitement and confidence for the future.
