Lee Strafford has tendered his resignation as a Board member of the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Lee has been a member of the LEP Board since it began in December 2010.

Lee was due to finish his tenure this summer, following a full review of LEP Board membership, but has decided to leave earlier to pursue his many other interests.

James Newman, SCR LEP Chairman said:

“Lee is an expert in the creative and digital industries and a leading business man and his commercial achievements, particularly as co-founder of PlusNet, testify this.

“His current work on the DotForge Accelerator, a programme to nurture and grow start-ups, is highly innovative and demonstrates his appetite for others to share his success as a digital entrepreneur.

“As a board member Lee was a free-thinker always ready to challenge the status quo.

“I am sad to see him leave and I will miss his insights on the Board, but I am sure he will continue to contribute to the City Region in the future.”
