Search for new LEP Chair – could you do it?

LEP starts to search for a new Chair

The Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership is asking local business leaders’ an important question – Can you drive forward the UK’s growth engine?

Following the news that Neville Reyner CBE DL is passing on the reins following the successful set up phase of the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (LEP), the Board is seeking a new Chair.

Interim Chair of the LEP, Mark Reeve, explains: “This is a truly unique opportunity to drive business growth in an area that is one of the engines of growth for the UK as a whole, boasting an unrivalled blend of internationally competitive clusters, and where sound stewardship of the local economy can contribute hugely to the recovery of the wider UK economy. We have achieved so much already, including landing the Enterprise Zone at Alconbury, and created a strong base for our new Chair to build upon so that we can realise the huge potential within our economic area.”

The role of Chair of the LEP would involve a time commitment of around 30 hours per month, with all expenses and an honorarium payable to the successful candidate.

Mark Reeve continues: “The right person will be from a business background, who understands the local economy and is able to champion the diverse range of interests within. They need to be credible with both Government and businesses of all sizes, and have the ability to draw together private, public and third sector organisations. Overall, we need a strong strategic thinker, who can make the right decisions to deliver economic growth for our area.”

Suitable candidates are being asked to make an expression of interest by 6th July by emailing
