Managing Director appointed to new Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce

Thursday 13th March 2014

Stephen Wright, Managing Director of Bradford-based Thorite and immediate past President of the Bradford Chamber of Commerce, has been appointed Vice Chairman of the West and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.

This new voice for the advancement of Yorkshire business is the result of a recent merger between the Bradford, Leeds, York and North Yorkshire Chambers. It will provide a range of services designed to help business in many areas, including start ups, growing internal teams and providing access to high quality business support, policy and representation.

Speaking after his appointment Stephen Wright said: "I am delighted to have been asked to take up this position with the merged Yorkshire Chambers. Thorite has grown to become the UK's largest independent distributor of pneumatic products and process systems, and although centered in Bradford we also have one of our ten regional Sales and Service Centres in Leeds, so I feel I have the business interests of both cities at heart. As part of previous Chamber responsibilities I have also been closely involved with government ministers and departments, helping facilitate the vital link between national and local business policy and I look forward to maintaining this dialogue in future."
