Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership Board
The Combined Authority’s partnership with business is led by the Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership, which is part of a network of LEPs around the country, promoting the economic growth of their areas.
The Tees Valley is regarded as amongst the strongest and most ambitious public-private partnerships in the country. We are proud of our close partnership with the business community, with business leaders committed to work to generate jobs and bring new investment into our area. Their involvement ensures the Tees Valley stays at the forefront of new business development, and helps to support our existing businesses to achieve their full potential.
The Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership board is made up of a mix of representatives from the public and private sectors representing each of the boroughs that make up the Tees Valley and a cross section of business and industry.
Membership of the Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership Board is currently being reviewed. Part of this review will ensure membership reflects key sectors, the business make up of the Tees Valley and diversity.
