Tony Attard, chairman of the board, said: “Building a strong and skillful board is one of the great pleasures of being chair and I look forward to the great contribution I know each will make to the greater success of Lancashire.”

Ruth Connor, chief executive of Marketing Lancashire, said: “I am looking forward to working more closely with James, Craig, Anna and Clive as we launch the new Lancashire narrative to promote Lancashire with a strong, confident, unified voice that encourages and supports greater investment and interest in this wonderful county.

“Each of these individuals, all leaders in their field, brings excellence and passion for county-wide success to the table and we’re thrilled to have them on the board.”
