James Phipps, CEO of Swindon-based firm Excalibur Communications, has announced that he will be stepping down from his role as board member of the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SWLEP).
James has completed his first term of service with the SWLEP Board, having joined in January 2013, and decided not to extend to a second term so he can concentrate on his various business and private endeavours.
During his time on the SWLEP Board, James has used his extensive experience to help drive forward the four key objectives of: stimulating growth, encouraging inward investment, supporting the creation of jobs and skills, and developing the economic infrastructure of the area.
Commenting on his decision, James said, “My involvement with the SWLEP Board has been extremely satisfying. The SWLEP has achieved a lot during my time on the board and I am proud to have been involved.”
Barry Dennington, SWLEP Chair, commented, “On behalf of the SWLEP Board and everyone we have worked with, I would like to express my personal thanks to James. He has made an invaluable contribution to our work and we wish him every success in the future.”
