Formally announced at the Doncaster Chamber AGM in December, Doncaster Chamber is pleased to announce new appointments to its Board.

Changes to the Board include:

  • Jill Wood (Signum Facilities Management) promoted to President
  • Andy Morley (ProAktive), Steve Bradley (NatWest) and Jim Carley (Carley Consult) welcomed to the Board as Elected members.
  • Karen Beardsby (Unipart Rail) and Heather Boyce (Age UK Doncaster) welcomed to the Board as Co-opted members.

Operating as a not for profit organisation, the Chamber represents Doncaster’s private sector and promotes business growth through providing a wide range of tailored services and benefits to its members.

Jill Wood, newly appointed President, said:“Signum has been a member of Doncaster Chamber for over six years and I am honoured to take the business relationship one step further by accepting the position of Chamber President.

“I joined the Board four years ago to actively support the economic growth of Doncaster. In that time I have seen the Chamber grow to its current position of Chamber of the Year, an accolade which shows just how much their team does for the local business community. As President I am keen to contribute to the vitally important schemes such as Opportunities Doncaster which the Chamber drives on behalf of business and the borough.”

Dan Fell, CEO at Doncaster Chamber, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Jill and the other important additions to our Board. The Board has fantastic representation from across a range of sectors.  This ensures that the Chamber is run for and by the local business community and, at a critical time for the local and national economy, fully representative of the private sector.

“The Chamber works closely with partners to do brilliant things for Doncaster and is at the heart of the local business community. I am confident that following Jill’s appointment we will continue to drive the local economy forward, positioning Doncaster as a place that means business.”
