Enterprise M3 Welcomes New Chairman

Enterprise M3 is delighted to welcome Dr Mike Short CBE as the new Chairman.


Geoff French CBE completes his maximum tenure as Enterprise M3 Chair in July.  We have been very proud to have had Geoff as the Chair of Enterprise M3 since it was established in 2011.  He has seen us develop into a high performing ambitious LEP that is succeeding, delivering and creating economic impact.


Dr. Mike Short CBE will take over as Enterprise M3 Chairman in August 2017.  Mike has been playing a significant role as an Enterprise M3 Board Member since his appointment in November 2014.  He has considerable expertise in the electronics and telecommunications industry highlighted by his career with Telefónica. Mike has been a driving force in placing the digital agenda at the heart of all that Enterprise M3 does. 


Mike’s appointment as Chairman is perfectly timed as he will be taking forward the priorities and recommendations emerging from the refresh of our Strategic Economic Plan that is due to be published in September.


We are also pleased to announce that Geoff will still be able to continue to support Enterprise M3 through his role as a member of the Transport Action Group, and he looks forward to supporting Mike as the new Chairman as Enterprise M3 continues its successful journey into the future.
