Become a Solent LEP Business Director

The Solent LEP has a balanced Board of Directors with a mixture of different skills and backgrounds, covering both the geography of the Solent area and key sectors. The Board is made up of:

  • 8 Business (B) Directors
  • 5 Public Authority (P) Directors
  • 1 Higher Education (H) Director
  • 1 Executive (E) Director who is also the Solent LEP Chief Executive

The Solent LEP is the first LEP in the country to have established a fully elected Board of Directors and Business Directors are elected by the Solent LEPs Business Members.

Our Business Directors play a key role in developing local solutions to enhance the economic prospects within the area. They help plan, support and direct the economic growth of the Solent, and act as ambassadors for the area on a local, national and international stage.

All Directors offer their time to the LEP on a voluntary basis and the time commitment is significant; often up to four days per month.

If you would be interested in standing for election when a Business Director vacancy becomes available, register your interest via email at vicki.stone@solentlep.org.uk and we will notify you as soon as the next application process opens.

Please note that the organisations of all LEP Business Directors must be registered as Business Members of the Company. Further information on Business Membership is available here.
