Managing Director of Red Berry Recruitment, Helen Lacey, has been announced as the new Vice Chair of Somerset Chamber of Commerce, having been voted in by the Board of Directors at the Chamber’s December board meeting.
Helen’s appointment comes as a result of the previous Vice Chair, Greg Saunders from Clarke Willmott, being elected as the new Chair at the Chamber AGM in November. This followed the departure of Graham Knight, who stood down after completing the maximum permitted three years in the role.
Commenting on her appointment, Helen said: “I felt this was the right time to put myself forward for the Vice Chair role, to support Greg in taking over from the wonderful work that Graham has done and to support Dale and the Chamber in whatever capacity I can. I am very much looking forward to seeing the Chamber grow even more over the coming years!”
Newly appointed Chair, Greg Saunders, added: “I was delighted when Helen put herself forward for the role of Vice Chair. I cannot think of anyone more able for the role and she was unanimously appointed by the Board. I look forward to working closely with Helen, Dale and the team to continue the ongoing fantastic work of the Chamber in 2017 and beyond.”
