An influential business organisation has appointed three prominent businesswomen to its board – including our MD Vikki Jackson-Smith.
The Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has recruited Vikki along with peers Annabel Turpin, chief executive and artistic director of ARC, Stockton’s arts centre, and Brenda McLeish, from Learning Curve Group.
This business-led partnership involves local authorities and business representatives working together to drive economic growth, create jobs, improve infrastructure and raise workforce skills within the local area.
Vikki said: “I am very happy to be on board and be able to contribute to the LEP with my experience in any way I can.
“The recycling and waste industry is changing rapidly and I feel it’s really important that we continue to meet the challenges that are presented to strive towards a more circular economy.”
She added: “It’s great to join to other prominent business leaders from the area and it will be great to have the opportunity to work together and promote and further improve what we know to be a fantastic region.”
Paul Booth, LEP chair, said: "These new appointments are three brilliant examples of people from organisations that are committed to our area and dedicated to seeing it succeed. Our already accomplished LEP is now even stronger thanks to Brenda, Vikki and Annabel, and their wealth of experience.”
