Elizabeth Vega, CEO of leading Manchester based IT and Management consultancy Informed Solutions, has been elected to the Main Board of techUK. Already a member of techUK’s Public Services Board and the Cabinet Office’s SME Panel, Elizabeth is one of the UK’s most committed advocates of the Government’s SME agenda.
Of her election, Elizabeth said:
“I am delighted to have been elected to techUK’s Main Board and am very grateful to those who encouraged and supported me in this process. Whilst we have offices in London and two offices in Australia, our corporate headquarters are in Manchester. Therefore, I see this as an opportunity not only to champion the interests of SME’s throughout the UK but also to fly the flag for the North West region as a great place to set-up and do business from.
To make the UK’s fragile economic recovery sustainable and enduring, it is critical that the regions and regional businesses are supported in their efforts to attract the investment needed to increase business activity, increase employment, increase exports and achieve real growth. As CEO of a well-established and growing mid-tier company, I am deeply passionate about ensuring that Government consolidates its promise to level the playing field for SMEs, enabling them to do more business with the public sector through open, fair competition and procurement processes.
I see my appointment to techUK’s Main Board as a great next step in championing and helping progress the SME, regional business investment and export growth agendas.”
Informed Solutions is a leading independent provider of professional services and systems integration, based in Manchester with offices in London, Melbourne and Sydney. Elizabeth Vega launched Informed Solutions in the UK in 1992 and has since built the company into an award winning market leader, currently expanding into Australia. (www.informed.com)
