Many of you will know David Lilley, our North Yorkshire and Humber Team Manager, and may have had some interaction with him. David is retiring from the business at the end of March after many years’ service with the Department for International Trade/UK Trade and Investment. Following on from David’s retirement, we will be moving on to a new team structure from April 2017. As a result, we will now have two teams; which will be headed up by Jo Hubbard and Donna Prior, whom many of you will already know. Jo’s team will cover Sheffield City Region and Humber with Donna’s team covering Leeds City Region and North Yorkshire. We are sure you will join us in wishing David all the best for the future.
