Greater Lincolnshire LEP begins search for new Chair

The Greater Lincolnshire LEP has begun its search for a new Chair to replace Pat Doody when his term of office ends next year.

The new Chair will be a private-sector appointment and the successful candidate will, along with CEO Ruth Carver, lead the organisation through the next phase of development.

She said: “Since it was formed a decade ago the LEP has established a first-class public / private partnership that approaches business growth and local regeneration in a positive and commercial manner.

“The new Chair will embrace this approach. Their fresh ideas will help us to navigate the current period of change as the Government focuses on delivering the levelling up agenda and devolution deals.

“We need a Chair with strong business acumen and political astuteness who will be happy and comfortable representing the Greater Lincolnshire LEP at a range of events, including discussions with Government ministers, ensuring that Lincolnshire’s issues are understood in Whitehall.”

Since 2010, as well as unlocking £500 million for transformational schemes in the region the LEP has created more than 3,500 jobs and 800 new businesses, delivered 75 major growth projects and programmes, supported over 8,500 learners and apprentices, and more than 100 Enterprise Advisers from across business and industry are supporting students in their career choices.
