Chamber strengthens team to support ongoing expansion

Liverpool Chamber has made a number of appointments in response to continued membership growth.

Vicky Rooney has joined as Events Manager, responsible for planning and overseeing a range of Chamber events including its annual Innovation in Business Awards, monthly Well Connected networking events, Chamber-Business Networks and a series of engagement, training and wellbeing events.

James Parker has been recruited as a Business Engagement Officer and will work alongside the Chamber’s membership and policy teams to understand and respond to the needs of businesses in the Liverpool City Region.

The Chamber has also appointed a new apprentice, Ben Kelliher, who joins in the Carnet and Export Documentation teams respectively, working with businesses which wish to explore new markets and trade overseas.

The raft of new appointments follows a period of sustained growth in new members, Patrons and Strategic Partners at Liverpool Chamber, which has undergone significant transformation over the past 18 months. It recently appointed Alison Lobb as its new Chair and Chris Waine as Deputy Chair.

Paul Cherpeau, Chief Executive of Liverpool Chamber, said:

“Recent years have seen the Chamber go through a period of unprecedented change and modernisation, which continues to culminate in significant expansion of our membership and reach within the city region as businesses come to understand the positive impact that the Chamber can have.

“At such an important time, we are pleased to be able to add to the dynamic talent within our team. We look forward to welcoming all four new recruits and seeing them offer further support to our members and develop our role as the authentic voice of local business.”
