Former Taylor Wimpey board member and government adviser Peter Andrew has joined We are Cornwall as a non-executive director.
Peter, from Mylor, was previously Land and Planning Director for the national housebuilder and one of four practitioners involved in the drafting of the National Planning Policy Framework for then Planning Minister Greg Clarke. Peter currently works three days a week in London as Deputy Chairman of the Home Builders Federation (HBF), as well as providing advice to the home building sector.
“I’m delighted that Pete is helping to drive We are Cornwall forward,” said Managing Director Sue Bradbury. “He has tremendous experience of strategic development and, from the start, has been an enthusiastic supporter of all that we are trying to do with the website and its related activities. I’m confident that, with his invaluable assistance, 2016 will see considerable expansion and improvement.”
We are Cornwall was launched by the SBPR team in March 2015 to provide visitors with a local guide to the county. It also has a particular focus on encouraging residents to take staycations and generally make the most of the many things to see and do in the county all year round. So far around 100 businesses are profiled on the website.
“I’m very pleased to be involved with We are Cornwall,” said Peter. “Sue and her team are using their impressive range of skills and expertise to help member businesses with their marketing and promotion – not just through the website but also through activities like county-wide workshops, email campaigns, blogs, competitions and video production. It’s a complete one-stop service for Cornwall that, I believe, has a huge amount of potential.”
