Sarah Louise's new LEP role

Jun 22, 2020

Sarah Louise Fairburn is now the Deputy Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Board.

Having joined the LEP Board in January 2019, to provide it with invaluable insight into Lincolnshire’s growing food industry – a priority sector for the LEP - she will now deputise for the LEP’s Chair Pat Doody.  Sarah Louise is also the chair of the Lincolnshire Food Board.

“The experience I’m gleaning puts me in an even better position to help the hard-working farmers we work with at Fairburn’s and I’m delighted to be able to transfer best-practice skills and knowledge back into our family business,” said Sarah Louise.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with the LEP board, promoting the many benefits of doing business in Greater Lincolnshire. The last few months have been very challenging for everyone, but with our close links to the private sector, the health and food sectors and local authorities, the LEP has been in a strong position to help.

“Having seen the potential of the LEP to support businesses and communities I’m really pleased that I’ve been given the opportunity to take more of a leadership role on the board and am looking forward to continuing to fly the flag for our region,” she added.

The Greater Lincolnshire LEP was set up in 2010 and is a public / private partnership led by the private sector. It works with central government and the private sector to invest in infrastructure, skills, innovation and productivity. The Greater Lincolnshire LEP covers an area including North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and the administrative county of Lincolnshire
