Welcome to the Business Board. The Business Board works with businesses, education, and local authority partners to drive economic growth, secure inward investment and protect and create jobs across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The Board is the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for our region and is made up of local business leaders and elected local leaders who are passionate about supporting businesses.

Not only does the Business Board ensure that businesses across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are given a voice and the opportunity to influence and advise the Mayoral Combined Authority it is also responsible for determining local economic priorities.


The Business Board comprises a fantastic team of industry executives and key opinion leaders not only within our region but also with national and international networks, interests and focus. We have representatives from key sectors of our economy including life sciences and healthcare, agri-tech and agri-food and advanced manufacturing. We also have strong academic expertise.

I am personally thrilled to be supporting and representing the needs and interests of the vital small and medium enterprise (SME) community, many of whom I work with daily. We take our responsibility for advising the Combined Authority Board most seriously and ensure that the voice of business is at the heart of the organisation.
