The NECA Executive Team

The North East Combined Authority has a small executive support team, including three officers of which it has a legal duty to appoint; the Head of Paid Service, Chief Finance Officer and a Monitoring Officer.

The team relies on drawing skills and capacity from constituent local authorities.

There are two other teams that sit outside of the core team. They are the Inward Investment team and the Regional Transport team.
