New board members at Liverpool Chamber
Four new faces are on the board at Liverpool Chamber with the appointment of a vice-chair and three non-executive directors
Liverpool Chamber has appointed a new vice-chair and three non-executive directors to its board.
Chris Waine became vice-chair following the resignation of Sue Grindrod, who had held the position since 2019. He is a director at specialist construction, property and management consultancy Hive Projects and an existing board member.
Jessica Parry, partner at law firm Brabners, Sean Keyes, managing director at engineering group Sutcliffe, and Rob Aitken, partner at financial services firm RSM, all join the chamber as non-executive directors.
All three experienced professionals were chosen following a selection process. They will support the board in delivering improvement at the Chamber, which has undertaken significant change in the past 18 months.
Changes include relocation to a new office and a restructure of the membership scheme. This was carried out to reflect the city’s changing business landscape, leading to a record number of new members and patrons.
Mr Waine said: “The chamber continues to evolve and more than ever it is playing a crucial role in supporting businesses at a time of economic volatility. I look forward to working with the existing chamber team and the new members of the board.”
Neil Ashbridge, chair of Liverpool Chamber, added: “Our new vice-chair and non-executive directors bring a wealth of experience across a range of sectors. Each has a rich knowledge of the local, regional and national economy, as well as the ecosystem that underpins enterprise.”
