Chairman and chief executive Frank McKenna, said: “We have enjoyed record sales during the past six months, with our work in the capital proving a big hit more quickly than we had forecast. We have also enjoyed big spikes in our memberships in Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.

“the current lockdown, we are optimistic about the future of the business and we are currently exploring new cities to take DIB to in 2021. Our growth and ambition mean that it is important to have a strong management team in place to continue our progress and momentum.”

Ms Bamford said: “I am naturally delighted to be given this opportunity. The company is highly ambitious, dynamic and entrepreneurial in its outlook. We have no doubt that DIB will come through the current challenges stronger than ever.”

And Ms Goldie added: “I have enjoyed every minute of my time at Downtown and it has been fantastic to be able to develop and grow the brand in my home city of Birmingham. I am excited by the opportunity to be able to engage with the issues and opportunities presented to the company at a national level, whilst being able to maintain my main focus on the West Midlands.”
