Pion Economics is a specialist economic, research, evaluation and strategy development consultancy. The company specialises in economic analysis, statistical and econometric modelling, impact assessment, labour market assessment, economic and labour market reviews. Operating since 1998, Pion Economics has undertaken a large number of detailed projects across the UK.

Pion Economics staff have been active reviewing and analysing regional and sub-regional economies for over 30 years, evidenced by a history of projects that stretches back over this time period.

During this time we have worked for the European Union, National Governments in England, Wales and Scotland, Government Offices, Development Agencies, Sub-Regional Partnerships, Local Authorities, LEPs and other organisations, amassing deep knowledge of the local and regional development process.

Pion Economics is led by Dr Jim Twomey, Director.  Jim started his career as a university economist but eventually moved to join a university based consultancy.  Rising to become managing consultant of the Economics division, Jim formed Pion Economics in 1998 and has been providing economic research, advice and policy analysis to a large range of clients under the banner of Pion Economics ever since.
