Founded by Birmingham 2022 Chair, John Crabtree, OBE, United By 2022 sees the potential of the Games to improve the image of Birmingham and the West Midlands and how, for thousands of people who live and work here, 2022 will become a springboard for new possibilities. An establishment Trustee Board has been put in place to ensure we don’t miss these opportunities as the new charity gets into gear.

Later this year, United By 2022 will run an open and transparent selection process to recruit a permanent Trustee Board. It will advertise publicly for Permanent Trustees and confirm positions on the Permanent Board before the Games. Once this happens the Establishment Trustee Board will be dissolved.

Our establishment Trustees are drawn from the region with dedication and expertise in a range of fields including sport, the arts and business.
