North East LEP Names New Innovation Director

Alan Welby has been named as the new innovation director for the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

Welby will lead the LEP’s innovation programme, which aims to drive delivery of key programmes and stimulate investment in innovation and its ecosystem in the North East of England. 

He joins the LEP from Liverpool John Moores University, where he was director of research, innovation and partnerships and was responsible for the delivery and management of a £25.7m annual programme of community, commercial and collaborative activity.

Welby said: “I am delighted to join the LEP as innovation director. I am very pleased to be working back in the North East and am looking forward to delivering results.

“I have always wanted to make a positive difference and this role will allow me to do so as innovation is so important when it comes to competing in a global economy.

“I am inheriting a lot of good work and the North East has a great track record in cutting-edge innovation.
