Tees Business co-editor Dave Allan introduces the 108-page summer issue of Tees Business featuring on its cover Teesside charity champion Yasmin Khan, who doubles up her role advising the Welsh government.
We’ve dubbed it “The Voice of Business in the Tees Region” – and the summer issue of Tees Business magazine certainly lives up to the hype. All 108 pages of it!
Our biggest ever issue is also, we believe, our best ever too. And it reads like a Who’s Who of the region’s thriving businesses and organisations.
Our cover feature focuses on Yasmin Khan, who combines her role leading Teesside-based charity The Halo Project with advising the Welsh government in her role as national advisor for violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence.
Yasmin, who will be key note speaker at the 2019 Tees Businesswomen Awards, was a double winner at the inaugural awards last October, most notably receiving the Inspiring Others award from category sponsors SABIC.

There’s also positive news on the future of Durham Tees Valley Airport (name change pending, subject to legals!), Middlesbrough Council shout about the latest accolades for the town’s thriving digital sector – and there’s a chance to get to know Laura Tarran, who has risen from pizza-maker to CEO of a group with a £30m turnover.
And there’s the results of our annual poll on the region’s best restaurant, as voted for by you – the region’s business leaders. And there’s a first-time winner!
