Our executive team, lead by Chief Executive Helen Golightly, drive and facilitate the delivery of the Strategic Economic Plan. The team has four core values which we embed in everything we do. These are Think Bigger, Better Together, Do the Right Thing and Make a Difference.

Think Bigger

We don’t believe in mediocre – we push boundaries, raise the bar and
stretch outside of our comfort zone so we can deliver the best outcome
and highest level of impact for our region.

Better Together

Partnerships are at our core – whether that’s internal or external,
national or local – we believe that developing trusted, collaborative
partnerships are central to everything we do.

 

 

 

 

Do The Right Thing

When we make a decision, we do so in an informed, evidence led way, with
integrity, self belief and accountability for the outcome that is intended.

Make a Difference

We are here because we have the passion, commitment and drive to make a
genuine difference and positive impact on people’s lives.
