Speaking of his time as Chair and the search for his successor, David said: “It has been a great pleasure and honour to lead this dynamic partnership and although there have been challenges, it has been a very rewarding role.

As Chair, you are able to make a real difference ‘on the ground’ and I look forward to seeing a new Chair take up the legacy and lead the LEP’s vision to build a greener, fairer and stronger economy for the region as we emerge from the pandemic.

The LEP is looking for a successful business leader who has a knowledge and passion for York and North Yorkshire. The new Chair will need to provide clear, strong, visible leadership and get out and about and talk to people and businesses across the region about what they need.”

Further information is available and applications can be submitted at: www.ynylepchair.com Applications will close on Friday 2nd October.
