We are delighted to introduce Craig Jones as the newest member of the NEUPC Board of Directors.
Craig joined the University of Derby as Director of Finance in June 2020, and prior to this he held Director roles in housing and social care regulated businesses. With a background in global professional services firms, including PwC and Deloitte, Craig brings significant experience of leading finance projects across UK Government and public services to our Board.
On joining the board, Craig says “I am delighted to join the Board of the NEUPC. My career in the professional services firms has largely focused on commercial structuring and large-scale public procurement to deliver new infrastructure. In this role, I have significant experience of bidding for new work and have experienced good and not so good procurement practice. Since taking on the role of Finance Director, firstly in social housing and now at a university, I understand the importance of effective procurement and how high performing procurement function can deliver key outcomes and value. I hope to use this experience to work collaboratively with the NEUPC team to deliver continued growth and commercial success.”
