Dan Jarvis MP MBE is Mayor of the Sheffield City Region and MP for Barnsley Central.
He is Chair of the Sheffield City Region Mayoral Combined Authority and one of his key priorities for the region is to unlock economic growth and drive forward investment and innovation.
Since Mayor Jarvis was elected in May 2018, major investments have been announced in the Sheffield City Region, while key facilities such as Boeing Sheffield and McLaren’s Composites Technology Centre have been officially opened.
Mayor Jarvis said: “Something special really is happening across the Sheffield City Region. What’s emerging is a compelling story that our region is resurgent. We’ve witnessed a first time in a generation growth in advanced manufacturing and engineering jobs.
“It’s testament to our hard work, determination and skills that international organisations such as McLaren Automotive and Boeing are choosing to open their European manufacturing sites here in the Sheffield City Region.
“I will continue to showcase our region on the international stage and work with businesses to ensure that they choose to invest and locate here.”
