“I am responsible for leading the Hinkley Supply Chain Team that Somerset Chamber of Commerce delivers on behalf of EDF Energy. This work centres on developing trust and productive relationships with UK and French Tier 1 and 2 contractors, in order to be in a position to make the case for higher value inward investment to be delivered in Somerset – as well as full engagement with local supply chains.

I have 28 years of experience working in business planning, banking and regeneration roles with small and medium businesses and for the last nine years has worked at the interface of local government and the private sector.  I have experience in making practical sense of economic and other data important to  both the private and public sector and in project managing expert teams delivering inward investment market research and a range of feasibility studies.

In my down time I enjoy walking, gardening with a developing passion for sailing out of Falmouth and Plymouth”.anne-fraser
