Jeff has lived in the Gatwick Diamond for most of his working life and brings a background in economic development and business support.

He has the advantage of already having worked closely with businesses and partner organisations across the Gatwick Diamond.

“I know the previous Chief Executive, Jeremy Taylor, leaves me with a hard act to follow after 14 years heading gdb, but I also inherit a great team which includes the support and guidance of a highly-experienced and committed Executive Council which includes business leaders from across the Gatwick Diamond.”

Jeff continued, “No organisation can afford to stand still, and I look forward to working with the gdb team to build on their success and further develop our offer to our members and prospective new members. I think this is particularly important now given the need for business to respond to challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of us.
