Entrepreneurs’ Forum welcomes election of Tees Valley Mayor and his commitment to job creation

Commenting on the election of Ben Houchen as the new Mayor of Tees Valley, Nigel Mills, Chairman of the Entrepreneurs' Forum, said:

“We are keen to support the new Mayor's commitment to creating more employment opportunities in Tees Valley, which is key to helping growing businesses in the area scale-up their operations.

"The Entrepreneurs' Forum has been a strong advocate for devolution and the election of Ben Houchen is a significant step towards the area having a greater control of its destiny, both economically and socially.

"We are keen to work with Ben, who as an entrepreneur himself understands the challenges and opportunities of running a growing business; His experience and relationships with organisations like the Entrepreneurs' Forum will help create an even better environment for companies to grow and thrive in Tees Valley."
