Business Growth and Innovation Board

Our Business Growth and Innovation Board (BGIAB) is one of the three formal advisory boards supporting the main D2N2 Board. Its chair is Tim Freeman, Deputy Managing Director at Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK), who is also a main Board member.

The BGIAB comprises partners from the private, public and skills sectors. It advises the main board on matters of strategy on business support, innovation, trade and investment and scrutinises delivery by the D2N2 team.
