The puff of smoke! and A new President is chosen...
After due process the Chamber Selection Committee of seven of the Chamber Executive members have met, discussed and or interviewed the shortlist of the four applicants who applied for the role of President of the Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The Selection Committee were very impressed by the calibre and quality of the candidates. "Any of the four could have made a very good President" was one comment. But when the secret ballot was taken, there was only the one Presidential vacancy to fill.
It is therefore with much pleasure and pride that we can announce that Chris Coopey, Practice Director at MHA Carpenter Box has accepted the Presidency for a term of three years from May 10th 2017.
Chris has previously served on the Executive Committee and has many contacts with economic forums, business leaders and Council senior management in West Sussex. We were very impressed by his enthusiasm, ambitions and ideas for what he described as "a fantastically important role!"
Tina commented “ I consider the Chamber to be lucky to have four strong candidates apply. They all expressed a desire to continue the good work of the Chamber and are very keen to take the Chamber forward as the voice of business in Adur and Worthing. I am also very pleased to have received agreement from all the candidates to take up some leading roles within the Chamber so that we can all benefit from their support and input. This has turned out to be an amazing opportunity and I really look forward to working with them all!”
