Mark is currently Chief Executive of Marketing Cheshire and Deputy Chief Executive of Cheshire & Warrington LEP.

At a crucial time for the UK economy, Mark will be working with all the LEP Chairs and Chief Executives, Government Ministers and senior Whitehall Officials on behalf of all of England’s 38 LEPs to ensure that local economies have the resources they need as they adjust to life after Brexit.

Commenting on his new role, Mark said: “I am delighted to have been given this opportunity at such an important time. This is such a critical time for local economies, and Local Enterprise Partnerships have a fundamental role to play in ensuring local partners work together to unlock local growth and respond to the changes that Brexit will bring.”

Cheshire & Warrington LEP Board Member and Chair of Marketing Cheshire, Angie Robinson said: “Mark has done a great job for the LEP, and more recently Marketing Cheshire, helping to establish both as amongst the best performing the country. We will be sorry to lose Mark, but it is great to see the experience he has gained in Cheshire and Warrington propelling him into a key national role.”
