Chamber International, the Bradford-based overseas trade specialist, has added a new export advisor to its client services team.
Laura Patterson joins from a Yorkshire textile company where she was a bilingual export administrator managing client accounts in South America, Canada, USA, France, Spain, Italy and Portugal handling orders from inception to delivery.
After gaining a languages degree in French and Spanish, Ms Patterson worked in Guadeloupe, Chile and France with the British Council as a language assistant in schools.
She then completed a master’s degree in applied foreign languages and international business at the University of La Rochelle, France.
At Chamber International, she joins an expanding team advising businesses throughout the UK on a wide range of export opportunities, requirements and procedures.
“I have already developed my knowledge of international trade significantly and I’m looking forward to advising and supporting new and existing exporters at a time when Brexit has got many more businesses and individuals interested in international trade,” she said.
