Former Multiplex chief enlisted for Donington Park job

Former chief executive of Multiplex’s UK arm Jayne McGivern has been enlisted by the firm responsible to get the Donington Park circuit project back on track to host the 2010 British Grand Prix.

Miss McGivern is credited with turning around the Wembley project and converting the Millennium Dome into the hugely popular O2 arena.

Simon Gillett’s Donington Ventures Leisure Ltd announced that it has employed the services of Miss McGivern to help the project get back on track.

There have been doubts that the famous site will be ready in time for the event as adequate funding is yet to be found. However, Mr Gillett has always been adamant the circuit will be up and running.

In a statement, DVLL said: “Jayne is a highly-respected businesswoman who is credited with turning around the Wembley project and was heavily involved in the purchasing of the Millennium Dome from the government to convert it into the O2 Arena.

“Her appointment is a further signal of Donington Park’s strong commitment to delivering a high-quality, fan-friendly formula one event.”

The company pointed to Ms McGivern’s proven track record of ensuring work is completed on time and to the highest standards.
