NEAA’s Eddie Leng takes up his retirement

The NEAA wishes to announce that Project Manager Eddie Leng, who has worked at the alliance for over five years, will retire at the end of the year.

We would like to thank Eddie for the dedication and support he has provided both in-house to the NEAA team but also to our members as well as through our ERDF funded programmes.

Eddie joined the NEAA with a wealth of experience having build a successful career in the automotive industry and he has been instrumental in moving forward a number of skills related initiatives as well as delivering vital consultancy to both large and small businesses.

Paul Butler, CEO comments: “Eddie was a great addition to the NEAA team when he joined in May 2015. He brought with him a vast amount of knowledge and experience, particularly around skills and business support. He was fundamental to the early growth and expansion of the NEAA network and has been instrumental in the NEAA’s success to date.

"However, the NEAA is one part of Eddie’s illustrious career, which has seen 27 years in the automotive sector alone. Throughout that career it is clear to me that there is one golden thread – his drive to make positive impacts on people’s lives. Eddie will be a loss to the NEAA but I wish him all the best in his retirement."

Eddie said of his time at the NEAA: “Over the past five and a half years it’s been both a privilege and a pleasure to have worked for the NEAA and its members. I’ve worked on some exciting and at times challenging projects, however, the one thing which has remained constant during this period is the outstanding individuals I have worked with.

"I, therefore, wish to take this opportunity to thank you all, for your contributions and expertise which has been invaluable to me and wish you all every success for the future.”
