Hampshire Chamber of Commerce has made four new appointments to its board, securing added experience in finance, communications, marketing and education.
Corporate finance expert Joe Jeffers is the Group Chief Financial Officer of Whiteley-based Peach Technologies, which acquired the IT managed service provider Taylor Made Computer Solutions in August 2018.
Marketing strategist, keynote speaker and corporate trainer David Harris is Managing Director and co-owner of Droxford company One2create.
Ed Gould is Partner and Creative Director of Southampton communications agency Carswell Gould and an active supporter of several regional business initiatives including Venturefest South.
David Wales is Head of Faculty Professions and Employer Responsive at Sparsholt College and has in-depth knowledge of the arts, charity and education sectors.
The four join the board as non-executive directors helping to shape the chamber’s strategic growth as the county’s independent voice of business.
They will work alongside Executive Chairman Ross McNally, Chief Executive Maureen Frost and fellow board directors.
Ross said: “While building their own successful careers, these four outstanding individuals have shown great support for developing Hampshire’s wider business community. This reflects the Chamber’s own purpose on behalf of our membership.
“We look forward to working closely with our new directors as they share their experience, knowledge, ideas and energy with our board.”
David Harris said: “I am honoured to join the board. As a Hampshire Chamber member for the past seven years, I know first-hand that the work it does for the business community is unrivalled throughout the UK. The Chamber has a lot to shout about.”
Joe Jeffers said: ”I am very much looking forward to working with the board on the overall strategic direction of the HCC – ultimately to ensure members continue to receive a great experience”.
