A new organisation that aims to accelerate the development of the North East economy has appointed its head officer. Caroline Hughes of Tynemouth joins the newly established NStar Finance & Business programme, which has been set up to help companies achieve their growth potential.

Caroline brings a combination of public and private sector skills to NStar's task of creating a financial support programme aimed at SMEs.
