Greater Lincolnshire LEP board opportunities

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 15 Nov 2017

TWO dynamic individuals with an understanding of business and a taste for a challenge are being sought to help drive forward the work of the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership. 

Two existing board directors – farmer Mark Tinsley and Andy Orrey, retiring chief executive of housing partnership Ongo – are stepping down, and the LEP is now inviting applications to fill the voluntary vacancies. 

The new recruits will have a private-sector background in food or housing, an understanding of Greater Lincolnshire and access to a network of influential contacts.

“The food and drink sector has grown faster than any other major industry in the UK in the past six years, and Greater Lincolnshire drives the UK’s largest and most progressive food sector based on clusters of dynamic businesses and well developed supply chains,” said Ursula Lidbetter MBE, chair of Greater Lincolnshire LEP.

“Our own target for delivery of the agri-food sector plan is to double its contribution to the economy by 2030.

“Housing in Greater Lincolnshire is inextricably linked to the economy and contributes substantially by creating two jobs for every house built. New housing has the potential to attract and retain the workforce needed to enable growth.

“Our heartfelt thanks go to Mark Tinsley and Andy Orrey for their tireless enthusiasm and drive in leading in these strategically important sectors for a number of years.”
