29th August 2018

Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry (-the Chamber) is pleased to announce the following changes to its executive team: Following 3 successful years as Operations Director, Brenda Jordan has been promoted to the role of Chief Operating Officer with full responsibility for the running of the operations of the Chamber, including membership & member services, training, international trade, events, marketing and the management of all staff.

Richard Wright, will focus on external issues in the role of Director Policy & Representation. Richard's key responsibilities will be representation, lobbying and strategic interaction with members,the city and other stakeholders. Both Richard and Brenda will report directly to the Board. Chamber President, John Hayward, said -these changes reflect the dual nature of the Chamber and the equal importance of the management of the Chamber on behalf of its members and the external representation of members' interests. In an increasingly complex business environment the separation of the two roles will improve the delivery of both areas of responsibility. I wish Brenda and Richard every success in their new roles.
