Boast described Squire and Pomfret, who is chair of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, as a “dynamic and influential partnership”.
He added that their joint skills would be a “powerful combination” in helping Hall for Cornwall to be a “leading venue within the South West”.
