New blood is being added to Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster (BECBC) to increase its representation of those within the 18-to-30 age bracket. Our own Principal Project Manager, Alex Grainger, is joining that initiative, having recently been appointed to the shadow board.
BECBC is a private sector-led organisation of roughly 320 member companies (from small-to-medium enterprises to global companies) that convene monthly to share knowledge and discuss opportunities, primarily within West Cumbria’s energy sector.
Alex joins seven other young people from a range of BECBC member companies to comprise the shadow board. We’re eager to see him participate in discussions with other thought leaders on how to promote best practice, collaboration, and innovation within the energy sector.
Commenting on his new appointment, Alex said:
“It’s a privilege to be appointed to the BECBC shadow board. I am passionate about Cumbrian business and the socio-economic impact that thriving industry can have on the local area. I see this is a real opportunity to positively influence the future of commerce and social prosperity in Cumbria as we capitalise on the vast investment within the energy sector.”
Ivan Baldwin, BECBC chairman, said the appointment of the shadow board was an exciting development:
“As a conventional board, we’re looking forward to their fresh ideas, challenge and perspective as this new initiative takes shape.”
