Two new directors join Doncaster Chamber

Stefan Rodgers and Andy Hibbitt have joined Doncaster Chamber to drive the development of support for business and education across the borough.

Stefan, in his role as Commercial Director, will help the Chamber to become the best in the UK by providing support to its members to grow their own businesses.  He will use his 11 years of experience at Board level in Sales, Marketing and Commercial roles, to help create mutually beneficial relationships through collaboration with stakeholders across Doncaster to improve jobs, education and people’s lives.

Says Stefan: “The impact the Chamber has is truly extraordinary and I’m looking forward to shaping new commercial opportunities through meaningful collaboration with our members, partners and key stakeholders.”

Andy Hibbitt joins the team as Education and Skills Director to lead on the Chamber’s Doncaster Skills Academy and related activities that bring together business and education. He brings with him a decade of experience within the education sector, having previously held senior positions in both a private training provider and large awarding organisation.

Andy will grow DSA’s current portfolio to bridge the skills gap across the borough by connecting the skills needed by local employers with those of young people leaving the school system.

He says: “I’m excited to join Doncaster Chamber for the opportunity to build on the work already undertaken in the borough. I see this role as crucial to both supporting young people to make the best employment choices for themselves, and for the benefit of local businesses and the wider economy.”

Says Chamber CEO Dan Fell: “The two new directors already have big ideas for developing the Chamber’s business support activities and Doncaster Skills Academy and to continue to be known as a Chamber that gets things done on behalf of members and the borough.

“They each have a wealth of commercial expertise that will benefit not only the Chamber as an organisation but our members, partners, skills and education providers, their workforces and the local economy.”
