Berwick Partners has been appointed to find a new Chairman for the Greater Birmingham Solihull Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP).

The search firm, who are part of Odgers Berndtson, will be tasked with finding a prominent business leader who can be a “passionate champion” of Greater Birmingham businesses.

Outgoing Chairman, Steve Hollis, explained that his successor will need to oversee the group for, what he hopes will be, continued success.

He said: "When the GBSLEP was formed in 2011 the Greater Birmingham region was an economic laggard compared to its UK regional counterparts. Wind forward to 2017 and our region is a stand out economic success story leading the way in job creation, business start-ups, exports and inward investment.

"This position presents a fantastic opportunity to work with the private and public sectors in Greater Birmingham and Solihull, playing an active and influential role in the West Midlands Combined Authority and in the Midlands Engine, to develop effective relationships that will support continued growth."
