A New Face in Business Support will help Companies in the North of Warwickshire

A new face in business support will help companies in the north of Warwickshire to find out every opportunity they have to grow.

Kier Andrews is the new account manager at the Coventry and Warwickshire LEP Growth Hub and will focus on the Nuneaton & Bedworth and North Warwickshire areas of the region.

Kier, who has worked within SMEs as well as at Jaguar Land Rover, is holding drop-in sessions for firms right across the area at different locations each Thursday. They are run in conjunction with Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council.

He will advise how businesses can tap into support for the Growth Hub but also help signpost them to other organisations which are able to assist them with their expansion plans.

Kier said: “I’ve worked with both micro and small businesses plus spent over seven years with Jaguar Land Rover.

“I held various roles mainly in marketing and look forward to bringing my experience and solid grounding to support companies in the area.

“I have been holding the drop-in sessions for a few weeks now at different locations in Nuneaton and Bedworth and we’ve already been able to offer valuable support to the companies who have attended.

“I am keen to gain momentum for the sessions and expand this further to North Warwickshire by informing more and more businesses from across the area what is available and how they can access it.”
