Annabel is the Head of Skills at the LEP and has been in post since September 2015. She spent 9 years with the Skills Funding Agency prior to her appointment and before that worked at Selby College and VT Training. In the dim and distant past she was a restaurant manager and still likes to demonstrate her multi-plate handling skills whenever possible.
Annabel is a keen runner and drags willing and unwilling colleagues around the streets of York for regular lunchtime runs. She also helps run a local youth club and goes to circuits when her trousers get too tight. She has one teenage son and a cat.
