The man who oversees regeneration in Hull will discuss the city’s future with business leaders at an Institute of Directors event this month.

Mark Jones MBE, director of regeneration at Hull City Council, is the guest speaker at the IoD’s Meet-Up Monday event on 24 September.

The event takes place at The Guildhall from 5.30 to 7pm. Entry is free for all, with the opportunity to meet and connect with fellow directors in a relaxed atmosphere.

Mark has worked with the ports sector in Hull and the Humber for many years. He led the council’s partnership approach to Green Port alongside ABP, the University of Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Council. He has also worked alongside ABP and Siemens to maximise the potential of the offshore renewables sector.

During the evening Mark will give a brief overview of his role, update guests on current and future plans for the city and take questions.

Pat Coyle, chairman of the IoD in East Yorkshire, said: “We are grateful to Mark for sparing his valuable time to join us as our guest speaker. We’re looking forward to hearing his update on current and future projects in the city. Attendance is free to all but we would recommend early booking to avoid disappointment as we anticipate this event will be fully booked.”
