The Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) was established in January 2011 to drive economic growth across the sub-region. The CW LEP is the guiding force that ensures all private and public sector parties are working together with a common, shared purpose – to make a difference to the economy and increase prosperity.
The organisation has four key objectives:
To drive economic growth
To help remove barriers to economic growth
To help create high value jobs
To co-ordinate local government co-operation and support
The CW LEP is legally incorporated and has a dynamic board comprising of leading business figures and key public sector and university representatives – all united under the leadership of Jonathan Browning. The CW LEP has established eight business groups which aim to improve business conditions in a range of key areas including planning, high value manufacturing and transport. Each group is made up of experts in the relevant fields and is chaired by a leading local business figure, who in turn reports to a full board director.
