Lisa Devayya joined Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council in January 2016 as the Economic Development Officer. This was a brand new post as the Council recognised that businesses are the life blood of the economy and are keen to support the business community to thrive. However Lisa was no stranger to this role as she previously worked for Dacorum Borough Council for 5 years in a similar post so was able to hit the ground running.
Her role includes acting as a key point of contact for businesses seeking advice from the council or its partners, promoting inward investment to the borough, offering support and advice (including signposting to other supporting organisations), apprenticeship advice and guidance and any other activity that ensures local businesses flourish.
Lisa has set up a Business Forum to debate common opportunities and threats and devise joint actions to improve the business environment.
