Dr Nik Kotecha OBE appointed Chairman of the East Midlands CBI

Congratulations to our Founder and Chairman Dr Nik Kotecha OBE who has been appointed Chair of the East Midlands CBI (Confederation of British Industry).

Speaking about his new appointment Dr Kotecha said: “I am thrilled to be taking over as chair of the East Midlands CBI Regional Council at what is a challenging yet potentially exciting time for business.

“The CBI has some bold ambitions designed to grow prosperity and opportunity throughout the East Midlands economy, as we look to rebuild from the pandemic, nurture new cross-sector collaborations and move towards a low-carbon future.

“Doing so will take a concerted effort from government, education and enterprise. Leaders must foster a culture of growth by investing in the infrastructure, people and skills this region needs to combat pockets of deprivation and raise aspirations and attainment.

“If we get the key decisions right at this pivotal time, I am confident there is a bright future in store for East Midlands businesses. I look forward to playing my part in this new role alongside regional CBI colleagues.”

Richard Blackmore, CBI Midlands Director, said: “I am delighted to welcome Dr Kotecha to the role of Regional Chair, and would also like to place on record my thanks to Darren Wilson for his huge contribution to the region during the challenges of the past two years.

“Dr Kotecha brings a wealth of knowledge of the region and insight into the issues that matter to businesses. His expertise will be a major asset for businesses and for the CBI as we look to work towards a net-zero future and implement the strategies for growth set out in our Seize The Moment economic vision.”
