Tees Valley LEP reveals five new Board appointments
The Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has added five new faces to its Board to help drive economic upturn in the region.
As well as experience in running successful businesses and generating jobs, the new members bring collective experience in culture, health, customer service and the application of technology, which will bring value to the delivery of the area’s Strategic Economic Plan.
The new appointees are Alistair Hudson, mima Director, Angela Howey, Head of Consumer at EE, Jerry Hopkinson, Chief Operations Officer at PD Ports, Mike Matthews, MD of Nifco, and Siobhan McArdle, Chief Executive of the South Tees NHS Trust.
In addition, the Chief Executive of the North East England Chamber of Commerce, James Ramsbotham, will join as an Observer Member of the LEP.
Paul Booth, Chair of Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “The ambitious devolution deal is gathering pace, and the Tees Valley cannot achieve its ambitions without the commitment of the local business community.
“I am delighted to be joined by such a dynamic group of leaders in their sectors, demonstrating their commitment to the Tees Valley’s future, and bringing vital expertise and experience.”
Chair of the Combined Authority, David Budd, added: “With our new constitution, and a new Tees Valley Mayor to be elected on 4th May, it’s great to see the commitment shown by so many of our local business leaders.
“They will help ensure the Tees Valley speaks with a strong and united voice, in bringing new jobs and investment into our area.”
