Black Country Chamber of Commerce Appoints Three New Directors

At the General Meeting on 14 April 2015, members of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce voted in favour of appointing three new Directors to the Board. The three new members are Christine Thomas, Chief Executive of Christine Thomas Ltd., David Roberts, Managing Director of Wolverhampton Racecourse and Kevin Rogers, Chief Executive of Paycare.

Upon receiving the vote in favour of appointment Christine Thomas said: "As a member of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce for approximately 5 years, and a local SME we have benefited from business advice, support and connections the Chamber offers its membership.

"As someone who has lived and worked in the Black Country area for most of my life, the regeneration of the area and developing the economy is very close to my heart.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to support the Chamber's aims and to help local businesses take every opportunity available and to have an impact on our regional economy.”

Christine has more than 20 years of experience at senior HR level in the corporate environment and almost 6 years running her own business as a Business Relationship Coach and Mentor. Christine has also worked with the Employment Tribunal Service as a Lay Member of the panel for the past 18 years.

David Roberts said: “I am delighted to be joining the Board of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce after many years as a Patron. This is at a time when the Black Country is moving forward, not just on its traditional manufacturing fronts, but in education, leisure and retail as well.

"I hope that my 15 years of experience in the Black Country as a hotelier and leisure operator, together with my national and international experience of markets in horse racing will help support the strategy and aims of the Black County Chamber of Commerce.”

Kevin Rogers said: "I am delighted to be joining the Black Country Chamber Board at a very exciting time. I look forward to working closely with the new Consultative forum, utilising my skills in both the manufacturing and service sectors to drive forward the Chamber and its member’s aims.

"The Black Country has a proud and great history, and is already a worldwide brand. Not only do we have to ensure that we keep shouting loud about this, but we have to work with our members to make it even greater."

Kevin has had over 20 years’ experience operating in senior management and board positions in both the manufacturing and service sectors at UK based companies and multinationals.
