D2N2 appoints five new board members

D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership has appointed five new board members.

The LEP board brings together leaders from across the public, private, and education sectors who advise on key strategic decisions and use their knowledge and expertise to support D2N2 in achieving its ambitions for Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, and Nottinghamshire.

The new Board members bring a wealth of experience and expertise across a range of disciplines including automotive, manufacturing, Further Education (FE), Higher Education (HE), and the Voluntary, Community, and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector.

Tim Freeman and James Brand join as private sector representatives. Tim Freeman is the Deputy Managing Director of Toyota Manufacturing (UK), based in South Derbyshire whilst James Brand is Managing Director of United Cast Bar based in Chesterfield.

Andrew Cropley, Principal at West Notts College in Mansfield will become the Board’s new representative for Further Education whilst Professor Shearer West, Vice Chancellor of the University of Nottingham will represent the region’s Higher Education providers.

Joining the board as the new Voluntary, Community, and Social Enterprise (VCSE) representative will be Michele Farmer, Director at the Princes Trust.

D2N2 Interim Chair David Williams said of the appointments: “On behalf of everyone at D2N2, I’d like to welcome Andrew, Shearer, Michele, Tim, and James to the board. Our new appointments have a real breadth of experience which will be essential as we help navigate the challenging environment our economy now finds itself in.

“I would also like to formally record my thanks on behalf of all the board and staff to the outgoing board members who have each contributed significant time and energy in furthering our ambitions and have been strong advocates and champions for the region and its potential.”

All five appointees will formally join the board in September.
