The Board

The Rochdale Development Agency Board comprises of senior figures from both the private and public sectors, including the Chief Executive of Rochdale Borough Council. The Board is private sector led and, collectively, is responsible for directing the RDA’s affairs, whilst meeting the appropriate interests of its stakeholders.

Rochdale Development Agency (RDA) has delivered some incredible achievements over the last 25 years, since its inception in 1993. I am proud of the way the organisation has seized opportunities and assisted Rochdale borough expand and improve. Over £2b of public/private investment has been directly generated creating new partnerships, jobs, investment and development. I look forward to continue working with this unique Agency bringing more opportunities forward for the Borough.
