Nigel joined OxLEP in June 2013 and has made his mark with energetic and inspirational leadership.
He spearheaded the bid for the Oxford and Oxfordshire City Deal, the EU Structural and Investment Fund and Strategic Economic Plan submissions and is assisting the county’s businesses into a period of exceptional growth.
Together with our partners, OxLEP has secured over £600 million-worth of central government and European funds for the county’s economy and – during this time – Oxfordshire has emerged as one of just three net county areas that contribute to the exchequer with a GVA of £23bn a year.
Nigel is also a key player in OxLEP’s lead role in the creation and implementation of the Oxfordshire Local Industrial Strategy, as well as the continued evolvement of the emerging Oxford-Cambridge Arc.
Nigel has over 20 years’ experience in the formation, development, operation and management of organisations – this is across both the public sector, as well as the private sector.
