Black Country Chamber President Shortlisted for the Sunday Times 2016 Non-Executive Director Awards

BCCCAG15 006Black Country Chamber of Commerce President Ninder Johal has been shortlisted for the Sunday Times 2016 Non-Executive Director Awards in the category of Not-for-Profit/Public Service Organisation. 2016 is the 10th anniversary for the prestigious national awards.

Responding to the news, Ninder Johal said: “This is a complete surprise. Coming after the Black Country Chamber came runner up in the British Chambers of Commerce 2015 Chamber of the Year Award it is welcome recognition, from a national business brand, of all the hard work the team has put in over the last few years.”

The Black Country Chamber of Commerce has seen considerable change since 2014/15: a restructure of its governance, the success of the Platinum Group and a drive for business growth in the region has set it apart from other Chambers.

“We have a fantastic opportunity going forward: Kevin Rogers will be taking over from me in a few months and together with our new CEO, Keith Bryan, will drive through an agenda that will enable us to deliver our aim of doubling the size of the Black Country economy by the end of 2023. I strongly encourage our neighbouring Chambers to join us in growing the local economy. We have seen the signals from Government and it is up to the private sector to take the lead. After all, we can inspire thousands of local businesses to find new markets, develop new products or to invest in new processes. Chambers of Commerce, working in partnership with other business organisations, can help to deliver a robust, world beating economy.”
