Councillor Paul Ekpenyong

Stowmarket Town Mayor 2019-2020

I first came to Suffolk on an assignment basis back in 2005. After almost a year of commuting from Hertfordshire, my wife Annette and I decided to move to Suffolk. We ended up settling in Stowmarket in 2006 where we have lived ever since. After 12 years in Cedars Park we moved last year to The Brickfields near the centre of town.

I work as a Commercial Director for a successful high tech manufacturing business in Suffolk that exports its products all round the world.

I have been a member of the Town Council since May 2015 and currently serve as Chairman of the Council as well as serving on the following committees:

  • Operations & Services
  • Planning & Development
  • Improvement & Innovation (Vice Chair)

In the local elections this year, I was also elected to Mid Suffolk District Council as the member for Stowmarket St Peter’s ward. At the District Council I serve on the following:

  • Mid Suffolk Growth Board (Chairman)
  • Licensing & Regulatory Committee
  • Joint Standards Commitee

Outside of the Councils, I also serve as:

  • School Governor at Wood Ley Community Primary School
  • Member of the Stowmarket Town Twinning Association
  • Stowmarket Town Twinning Association
