GLL and Nexus announce merger plans

Greenwich Leisure (GLL) and Nexus Community have unveiled plans to merge into a single business, which will be responsible for the operation of more than 100 leisure centres.

As part of the proposals, Nexus will become a trading division of GLL but will continue to operate under its current brand and retain its head office. It will primarily serve the Thames Corridor region. The two non-profit organisations have worked in partnership since 1996, and the merger is not expected to result in any job losses or any changes to business at an operational level.

GLL managing director Mark Sesnan said: "This merger offers a fantastic opportunity for both GLL and Nexus to take our businesses forward, share resources and build on our strengths. "Having worked in partnership for a number of years, the similarities between the two organisations have become evident and the advantages of working together obvious."

Nexus managing director Rick Durrant added: "The advantages of the merger will bring significant opportunities for our loyal staff and our local authority partners."
