Paul McEldon

Chief Executive

Paul McEldon

Since his appointment in 2001 Paul has injected fresh thinking into establishing the BIC as primary regional player in the fields of incubation, innovation and business support.

In addition to his work with the BIC, Paul works with several other organisations, all dedicated to shaping enterprise in the North East. Paul chairs the regional enterprise network group North East Enterprise Agencies Ltd (NEEAL), and was appointed chair of the National Enterprise Network (NEN) in 2012, prior to which he served as deputy chair.

Having also recently taken on a position as board member for Sunderland College, Paul’s new role presents the opportunity to influence education within the region and position self-employment as a realistic career option.
