CEO talks city growth, Brand Leeds and Devolution

The Chief Executive of Leeds City Council Tom Riordan addressed an exclusive Downtown in Business dinner this week and outlined his city’s ambitions on the digital and technology agenda; housing and regeneration; and devolution.

Riordan told Leeds business leaders that the city was in good shape and making good progress on its key priorities, but he wants to see a devolution deal sooner rather than later for Yorkshire.

He also acknowledged that, whilst Leeds had a great tale to tell, the city sometimes hid its light under a bushel. However, marketing and promotion had been stepped up with national and international campaigns, and he urged business leaders to become ambassadors for ‘Brand Leeds’.

The event was sponsored by B&M Waste Services and hosted at Fazenda.
