Big Business supporting Small Business

Our Chief Executive, Gary Lydiate, in his role as Non Executive Director for X Forces Enterprise (XFE), has helped to launch the organisation's Big Business supporting Small Business initiative.

At the meeting, Gary met with XFE beneficiaries and RAF Veterans Rosie Phelps and Simon Savage alongside XFE's big businesses, Patron Lord Young, and Business Mentor Lord Digby Jones, to celebrate and move plans forward.

Hailed a success, the event has already encouraged research on the UK vs US supply chain diversity in veteran owned businesses.

Gary joined X-Forces Enterprise in 2017 following an early career in the Merchant and Royal Navy.
