New LEP board member


The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has appointed Poppy Naylor as a non-executive director.

Naylor is a charity fundraising and marketing consultant with almost 20 years’ experience in the voluntary sector.

She spent 15 years at Cancer Research UK and led the campaigns team, including the Stand Up to Cancer campaign.

Since 2017, Naylor has run her own consultancy business with clients including Save the Children, Macmillan Cancer Support and Unicef UK’s Soccer Aid campaign, which raised a record £7.9 million last year. She is also a board trustee of First Light Southwest, a charity supporting people in Cornwall, Devon, and Wiltshire who have been affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence.

LEP chair Mark Duddridge said: “We’re delighted to welcome Poppy to the LEP and I have no doubt her skills and experience will enrich our board and its decision-making.

“We will shortly publish our Local Industrial Strategy which will set our future priorities. We look forward to working with business, government and partners on delivering against that agenda.”
