Speaking of his election Stephen Wright said: "Local manufacturing is in many ways the driving force behind the economic health of our area. I'm delighted to have been selected to Chair the RAB and will do everything I can to assist manufacturers create the conditions they require to grow in the difficult trading conditions we have to work with for the foreseeable future."

Bradford-born and proud of his heritage, Stephen is also President of the Bradford Chamber of Commerce, a member of its Board of Directors and of its subsidiary company Business Enterprise Fund.
