Strategic Oversight Board

MEIF is collaboration between the British Business Bank and ten Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) in the West Midlands and East and South East Midlands.

MEIF has established a Strategic Oversight Board with the Local Enterprise Partnerships to ensure that the LEPs are appropriately represented. The Strategic Oversight Board’s function is advisory and it provides strategic input into MEIF’s governance and decision making processes.

The Strategic Oversight Board is currently chaired by, the Chair of Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership and includes representatives from six other LEPs and from BEIS, DCLG, HM Treasury, the EIB as well as The British Business Bank.

MEIF also has two Regional Advisory Boards for the West Midlands and East & South East Midlands to review fund manager performance at a local level and will make recommendations to MEIF and the Strategic Oversight Board.
