Trio join Mid Yorkshire Chamber board of directors

A trio of professionals have joined the board of directors of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce as part of new year growth plans.

Alison Palmer, corporate partner at Eaton Smith, Mark Evans, Director of Better Telecoms, and Jan Szczepanski, Director of the SFB Group Wakefield office, join the existing team to strengthen its growing support and representation of businesses across the Halifax, Huddersfield and Wakefield districts.

The trio will take the current board to 10 members.

Martin Hathaway, Chamber MD, said: “The new board members will strengthen our existing team and will support our growth going into 2019 and our vision to support more businesses within the local districts.”

Alison Palmer said: “I am delighted to be joining the Board at such an exciting time, and I’m very much looking forward to the growth plans for 2019. I’m extremely determined to do all I can to help the Chamber continue to connect, support and represent our businesses.”

Mark Evans said: “It’s an honour to be invited to sit on the Board. As a member of the Chamber myself, I am familiar with the benefits businesses receive through membership, and I want to play a part in raising its awareness.”

Jan Szczepanski added: “I joined the Chamber in 2005 as a member, because in the various businesses I worked in as a finance director I was able to benefit enormously from the services and support of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber.

“I built up a great respect for Chambers generally. Having founded my own small start-up business I also found that there were several services which the Chamber offered to help grow our business.”
