Deputy CEO of Motorpoint Arena Nottingham and National Ice Centre, Martin Ingham, has been appointed chief executive of the venue and its indoor ice rink.

Ingham takes over from Geoff Huckstep who retired in May after 15 years. Since then, Ingham, who is also chairman of the National Arenas Association, has been the interim replacement. He joined Motorpoint Arena in 2002.

Discussing his promotion, Ingham said: “I have loved working at this superb venue from day one. The combination of delivering both sport, from social activity to competitive and Olympic level athletes, and world class entertainment, including concerts, comedy, sport and family shows, is unique and utterly compelling to work within.

“When you add in a team of staff that display such extraordinary skills, dedication, tenacity, creativity and humour that the complexities of our industry demand, then it is an even greater privilege to be appointed to the role.

“I am really looking forward to developing the relationships with our extensive range of stakeholders to ensure that we continue to further improve the range and quality of our services.

“We have numerous exciting projects already in the pipeline and the whole team are looking forward to delivering these for the benefit of all our customers, the city of Nottingham and the East Midlands region as a whole.”
