Peter Luff joins NDI Advisory Board

Supply chain development group NDI has confirmed that prominent politician and former Defence Minister Peter Luff MP has joined its Advisory Board.

NDI works with businesses to help them gain access to supply chain opportunities within the defence, aerospace, space, marine and security sectors.

The organisation’s Advisory Board brings together senior professionals from Parliament, government and industry to provide strategic guidance to the NDI Management Board and Dave Townsley's team in Seaham on the future direction for the organisation in delivering practical and meaningful services and support to NDI member companies.

Peter Luff MP, who until earlier this year served as Minister for Defence Equipment, Support and Technology, has accepted an invitation to become a member of NDI's Advisory Board.

Mike Maiden, NDI Chairman, said: "Peter Luff demonstrated when he was a Defence Minister that he has a real understanding of the importance of the SME sector for the delivery of defence capability to the armed forces and for national economic prosperity.

“I am delighted that Peter has agreed to support NDI's mission to empower SMEs with the skills, knowledge and opportunities to be part of the supply chains of the future by becoming a member of our Advisory Board."

Peter Luff said: “NDI was an excellent source of advice during my time as a Minister and they were major participants in the SME forum that I established. In fact they were an invaluable link to the Defence SME community.

“I believe that small and medium sized businesses have much more to give to our nation's security and economy and that is why I am so pleased to be able to continue my engagement with NDI as a member of their Advisory Board.”
