The Midlands Engine partnership gives our region a single, unified voice to speak to government, making a stronger case for greater investment to drive economic growth and boost productivity.
This is made possible thanks to a clear, fair and transparent decision-making framework, with representation on our different Boards from right across our partnership and our region.
The main decision-making body of the Midlands Engine is the Executive Board, which meets four times a year and provides leadership and strategic direction for our partnership. The Executive Board is headed by an independent Chairman and its membership is drawn from universities, local enterprise partnerships and local authorities, along with the Chair of Midlands Connect.
Membership is reviewed every three years or following any significant changes in circumstance for individual members. Agendas and associated papers for the Executive Board are published five days ahead of each meeting, with minutes published after meetings.

The Operating Board oversees work against our delivery themes and takes forward recommendations from the Executive Board. The Operating Board meets every two months and is chaired by Anthony May, Chief Executive of Nottinghamshire County Council.
Rachael Greenwood provides leadership and direction for the Midlands Engine, coordinating our initiatives and ensuring we deliver against our partners’ ambitions to achieve positive economic impact for every part of the Midlands. By working together – across sectors and right across our region – we have an exceptional opportunity to grow prosperity for our places and our people.
