Paul Hamer, Chief Executive Officer of WYG Group has been appointed as board member to the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The Leeds City Region (LCR) Partnership brings together a group of 11 local authorities (Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York, along with North Yorkshire County Council) with businesses and partners to support economic growth and a better quality of life for the communities.
Paul Hamer said: “As a Leeds-based business it is important to work with partnerships across the region to stimulate activity and growth which will drive local and national economic prosperity.”
The LEP Chair intends to bring together Board Members as soon as possible to begin discussing the key issues facing the partnership, which will be set up formally from April 2011. In the meantime the Partnership will continue to support businesses by coordinating bids to the Regional Growth Fund (RGF).
Paul added: “As a global consultant working in over 40 countries and continually WYG’s success is built on the core principles of collaborative and local partnerships and I intend to use my experience to help generate benefit for the Leeds City Region.”
