London South Bank University and ITV London have just joined the South Bank Employers' Group, the association of the area's largest employers.
Existing members include Shell International, IBM UK and The London Eye Company. The group's stated aim is to working together to improve the everyday experience of South Bank, Waterloo and Blackfriars for employees, visitors and local residents.
Current SBEG projects include renovating the historic sturgeon lights along the riverside walk, improving pedestrian access to the South Bank via the IMAX underpasses and leading the redevelopment of Jubilee Gardens.
"We are really pleased that both ITV London and South Bank University have decided to become members of this innovative and effective Group," says Ted Inman, CEO of South Bank Employers' Group. "For over 15 years we have been making a positive impact on this area but this has only been achievable with the support of our members. I am delighted to welcome them on board."
