Leisure provider Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust (WLCT) has appointed Pete Burt as its new managing director.

Burt, who joined WLCT in 2004, assumes the role as current chief executive Stuart Murray retires at the end of March.

Having recently worked as WLCT’s executive director of business development – with a focus on growing and enhancing the company’s health and wellbeing services – Burt is well-placed to drive the business forward. He boasts a strong CV, with significant experience in the private sector through stints with utilities giants such as Centrica and Scottish Power.

“Since we became a charitable trust in 2003 we have concentrated our efforts on expanding minds through cultural offerings and shrinking waistlines, which reduces the funding provided by local authorities to keep communities healthy,” said Burt.

“Our ultimate aim is to create new and healthy behaviours by showcasing the many benefits of adopting healthier lifestyles."
