Doncaster Chamber names four directors

Doncaster Chamber members have chosen two new and two re-elected directors to the organisation’s board.

For the next three years, re-elected board members Mark Clapham of Sherwood Group, and Paul Goel of Keeble Hawson, and newly-elected directors Michael Hart of Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust and Fiona Keane of Keane Creative will work to support and represent Doncaster’s business community and help drive forward area’s economy.

The board directors will support current Doncaster Chamber President Kelvin Fitton and CEO Dan Fell with their aims for the New Year to improve membership services, and support businesses in a challenging economic environment.

Kelvin Fitton said: “These four people each bring a wealth of business experience and are valuable additions to the team. The board is representative of Doncaster’s business community and serves to support its members in their growth and aspirations which in turn strengthen its offer as being a preferred place to live and do business.”

Michael Hart said: “It is a real honour and a privilege to have been voted in as a director of Doncaster Chamber. We have been members of the Chamber for many years and have always valued the support provided by the team. We are very lucky in Doncaster to have a very proactive Chamber who work hard to ensure that the voice of business is heard not only on a regional level but also on a national level. I am looking forward to working closely with the Chamber and its directors to continue this great work and help Doncaster to build on its reputation as a borough that gets things done.”

Doncaster Chamber is celebrating its 75th anniversary of supporting and representing the local business community.  Chamber members collectively account for 60% of the area’s private sector turnover. The Chamber offers a range of services and opportunities to help businesses reduce costs, meet new customers, and contribute to overall business improvement.
