Elaine previously worked for Tower Hamlets LBC in the economic and community development unit where she was involved in all the borough's major regeneration programmes and bids for European and UK funds.
'I want to build on the ground-breaking work on European urban policy started by my predecessor and led by cllr Sally Powell who is one of the people representing London on the EU Committee of the Regions,' said Ms Warner. 'Being in Brussels and working with other capital cities is vital to be able to have an influence on European policy.'
'I also want to work closely with all London boroughs to develop a European strategy for London, identifying key priorities for assistance to the capital so that we can maximise the opportunities for European funding.'
Elaine will be based at the ALG's office in Brussels at London House, 40 Rue Breydel Brussels.
