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 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.
Discovering the future of the Oxfordshire economy
It is undeniable that Oxfordshire presents significant economic potential for the UK, particularly in the context of a post-Brexit economy.
Assets such as the University of Oxford and its world-class research programmes, Harwell Campus, Culham Science Centre and a thriving automotive sector not only have worldwide reach but are already internationally-established too – not to mention a flourishing small business community that boasts one of the best five-year survival rates anywhere in the UK.
