Gatwick Diamond Business appoints new Chief Executive
11 October 2018
Gatwick Diamond Business is delighted to announce the appointment of their new Chief Executive, Jeff Alexander.
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.
The Gatwick Diamond is one of the strongest local economies, not just in the region but in the UK. This is built on business investment and success. I am delighted to have the opportunity to work in support our businesses to help them flourish and grow the economy of an area to which I have strong personal and professional commitment.”
