Margaret Wood has announced that she will step down from the High Value Manufacturing Catapult Supervisory Board on 31 December 2019. HVM Catapult Chairman, Allan Cook, thanked Margaret for the valuable advice and counsel she had provided to the board, in particular, for her insights on the diverse challenges faced by smaller businesses in our sector.  Making sure that the Catapult is valuable for all businesses will remain a key part of our ambition.

Margaret will continue to help shape the business environment and prepare the next generation of innovative businesses through her work to mentor new entrepreneurs, her engagement with the Yorkshire business community and, at a national level, as a member of the “Made Smarter” Commission. Margaret has successfully grown an innovative and high-performing business and her perspective will be an important guide for firms, the organisations that support them and policy-makers alike.
