Birmingham Post Power 250: The West Midlands’ most influential people

Some of SWM’s colleagues and friends were named amongst the recent Birmingham Post Power 250, reflecting 250 of the region’s most influential people. In the Science category, Pam Waddell from our partners Birmingham Science City was named in the top ten most influential. Pam drives forward innovation across the scientific community, including low carbon.  SWM works with Pam by coordinating the Innovative Low Carbon Working Group.  Norman Price, Birmingham Science City Chair, also features in the top ten. Martin Reeves, Chief Executive of Coventry City Council and who sits on the SWM Board, featured in the top ten of the most influential West Midlands public sector people.  Martin is passionate about the climate change agenda and works closely with us and the LEP to drive forward green growth.  The newest addition to our Board, Laura Shoaf from the WM Integrated Transport Authority, also features in this list for her role in influencing transport innovation and inter-connectivity in the region. Another of our Board members, Cllr. Lisa Trickett from Birmingham City Council, is in the top ten of those most influential in the utilities and telecoms section.  This is thanks to her work on the green agenda in helping to make Birmingham a “smart, green and sustainable city.” We congratulate all of the aforementioned for their continued influence in the West Midlands on the sustainability agenda.
