Head of Enterprise Policy for the Greater Manchester Combined Authority
I advise the Mayor of Greater Manchester, other Combined Authority members and the GM LEP on:
- Enterprise policy, including business support, innovation, sectors, entrepreneurship and scale-up
- Productivity and industrial strategy
- Digital strategy and policy including industrial digitisation
I joined the GMCA from New Economy, where I worked on science, technology and innovation. Before moving to Manchester in 2012 I spent over 10 years as a civil servant, mostly at HM Treasury, with time at the Department for Communities and Local Government, and in the New Zealand Government. My policy interests and knowledge include: social policy, public spending, economic development, innovation, enterprise and digital policy.
