BID Staff

Stewart Ness

BID Manager

Since October 2012, I have managed both the Linlithgow Mill Road BID & the Linlithgow Town Centre BID, I also hold the post of Town Centre Manger for West Lothian Council.

Before taking on the BID Manager roles in Linlithgow I served as a Director on the Board of Kirkcaldy 4 All, the Town Centre BID for my home town of Kirkcaldy.  It was within this role that I saw first-hand the positive effect a BID could have on projects within a defined geographical area, and was therefore delighted when the opportunity arose to manage the BID’s in Linlithgow.

I was successful in securing a “Yes” vote for both the Linlithgow Town Centre BID and the Linlithgow Mill Rod BID at ballot, which was the first time this had been achieved for two BIDs, at the same time by the same person.

I report to the respective Boards of Directors and have responsibility for the day to day operations of the Mill Road BID and the Town Centre BID.   This includes overseeing project delivery, finance and communications.

I am married with two small children and in my spare time I enjoy cycling, karate and golf.

Bridgette Kleinman

BID Project Manager

I joined the Mill Road BID in April 2016 to assist with the day to day running of the BID and bring with me a wealth of project management experience gained from years of successfully delivering projects within the financial sector.

My first project was to deliver a simple, user friendly web site for the BID that included a Business Directory for all the businesses within the estate and this was successfully rolled out in August 2016.

On-going activities include updates to the Web Site, Signage, Communications, Social Media and Database maintenance.

In December 2016 I joined the Town Centre BID, specifically to help promote town centre businesses on Social Media.   This has increased visibility for many retailers and has generally been well received by businesses and the public.

I’m a volunteer driver and administrator for St Columba’s Hospice in Edinburgh and find both roles hugely rewarding. I enjoy meeting patients and working with incredibly dedicated staff.

I enjoy getting out and about and spend a good deal of time walking on the Fife Coastal Path, travelling abroad and enjoying the sunshine.
