Chamber chief joins SEMLEP boardJan 18, 2018
Paul Griffiths’ appointment is a further boost to the strengthening business voice in shaping economic growth in the South East Midlands.
Mr Griffiths pictured said, “It is an honour to be appointed to the board of an organisation which is working tirelessly to tackle barriers to sustainable growth and promote job creation.
“Everything the Chamber does is designed to help businesses make the most of their potential so it makes sense for me to give my support to an organisation which is committed to making the South East Midlands one of the most successful economies in England by 2020.”
SEMLEP’s board, which comprises members from the private and public sectors, education and voluntary groups, has a collective strategic leadership role in identifying priority strategies and actions to deliver growth in the region.
SEMLEP chair Dr Ann Limb said: “Paul is well-connected to local businesses, large and small and, has his ear to the ground to local business issues so he will be a great addition to the board.”
As Chamber chief executive in Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire, Mr Griffiths works closely with both business communities representing their views to local, regional, and national government.
He is also a non-executive director of EMB-Group Ltd and its subsidiaries: East Midlands Business Limited and EMB Excellence Limited, and a member of the British Chambers of Commerce Accreditation Board.
