BECK HOSTS WINTER DRINKS AT NOMAD LONDON
Last Wednesday, BECK welcomed guests from the worlds of hospitality, interiors and museums, for an evening drinks reception at the location of our former project, NoMad London.
The Grade II listed building was formerly home to Bow Street Magistrates Court and Police Station. Infamous for trying political activist Emmeline Pankhurst, playwright Oscar Wilde and the Kray twins. NoMad London sits just across the road from the world-famous Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden.
‘Common Decency’, NoMad London’s intimate and cosy lounge bar was the setting for the drinks reception. A lantern lit pathway lead into the bar decorated with warm, low lighting, luxurious velvet drapes and antique mirrors. The award-winning bar team treated guests to cocktails and canapes, on arrival.
Attendees from BECK included Chris Galloway; Group CEO, Mark Banham, Group Board Director, Dan Herron, Group Managing Director, board directors Rob Brownett, Edward Kent, Chris Lawrenson, Roy Smith, Michael Walsh, Dal Chana, Steve Middleton, Project Production Director, Jason Parsons, Commercial Director, plus Vanessa Budd and Sarah Charley Ashby in Business Development.

In his welcome speech, Chris Galloway announced his move to the position of Group CEO, while Dan Herron becomes Group Managing Director. He spoke of what has been achieved over the past five years; including heavy investment back into the business and the staff, recruiting new highly experienced and skilled team members throughout the company, the formation of the BECK Employee Ownership trust and continuing to deliver excellence across the board.
Finally, he revealed what the company will be focussing on in 2023, ever increasing attention to detail on all projects, greater sustainability, expanding BECK Scotland, plus staff training and development. He finished by wishing all guests a successful and rewarding year ahead.
Later in the evening, guests enjoyed the unique sound of Duke, a beatbox band, who played a variety of dance classics, going back to the 90’s.
