New face at the TBP helm
A Telford business organisation has a new chairman who has ambitious plans to see the group grow even further.
Robin Melley, from Matrix Capital, is now at the helm of Telford Business Partnership and takes over from outgoing chairman, Graham Davies, who is our senior partner.
The handover took place at the partnership's quarterly breakfast meeting at The Holiday Inn, in Telford, and Robin said he was looking forward to the challenge.
"I'd like to acknowledge and thank Graham for the work he has done over the last 18 months as chairman - everyone on the board knows just how much effort he has put into the role," said Robin. "I hope I can follow on from what he's put together and continue to help move Telford Business Partnership forwards."
Graham said he'd enjoyed his time as chairman and wished Robin the very best in his new position.
"It's been a very interesting and challenging time for me as TBP chairman, particularly with the local economy going through such difficult times. But it's clear that businesses in Telford and Shropshire are committed to working together to build a strong future for the area, and I know our members will continue to support Robin and TBP as we plan our ongoing strategies."
