Thorite MD becomes Chamber Vice-President

Monday 1st February 2010

Bradford Chamber has appointed Stephen Wright, Managing Director of the UK's biggest distributor of pneumatic products and process systems, Thorite, as its new Vice-President.

Stephen joined the Chamber Board in July and has already represented Bradford's business community at the highest level, including recent meetings with the Prime Minister and Chancellor.

Of his appointment, Stephen said: "I'm looking forward to the new challenges that this role will bring. Bradford Chamber does a great job in representing business interests throughout the region and I want to be a part of that. Because I'm dealing with my own business issues every day, I understand the concerns of others like me and can be a voice for local companies. There is a great support team and I'm excited about future prospects for both the Chamber and for Bradford."

Stephen is now officially supporting Chamber President Harold Robinson, after being confirmed in his new position at an earlier Chamber Council meeting. Chamber Vice-Presidents usually succeed the President following their two-year terms of office and Dr Robinson leads Bradford Chamber until July 2011, when nominations open for a successor.

Chamber President Harold Robinson said: "I'm pleased to have Stephen working alongside me. He has a good grasp of the issues facing Bradford companies and I know he won't shirk from the challenge."
