For almost the last decade, Sarah has led the economic development and housing at Durham County Council. Her work covers all aspects of housing, business support and growth, tourism, regeneration and economic development.
Before this, Sarah led major urban regeneration projects at Tees Valley Regeneration.
She is a chartered town planner with over 25 years professional experience and a particular interest in the economic prospects of the North East.
Zoe took over the role as Principal/Chief Executive of Middlesbrough College in 2013, following 10 years as Vice and Deputy Principal.
She led the £70m project that saw the college relocate to Middlehaven in 2008 and the subsequent expansion projects which have focused the facilities, equipment and curriculum more closely towards the needs of local businesses.
Zoe is a qualified accountant with a background in the public and private sector, and extensive experience of delivering major projects including Public Private Partnerships, PFI projects and major capital development schemes. In 2012, she was voted by the Women’s Leadership Network as the most inspirational female leader in the country in further education.
The mum-of-two now lives in Stokesley, having spent her childhood in Saltburn and all her life studying and working in Teesside. Zoe is passionate about improving the lives of people living on Teesside and believes that education and employment are two key factors in achieving this.
