John Wright, owner of it'seeze Web Design Horsham, is the new Chairman of Billingshurst & Horsham Chamber of Commerce following his appointment at the Chamber's recent AGM.
John takes over from Chris Cooper, Director of Horsham based Seofon Business Services, who has had a busy and successful 18 months since being appointed Chairman of Billingshurst Chamber of Commerce in September 2017.
Chris was instrumental in the changes which saw the expansion of the catchment of the Chamber and the active inclusion of Horsham, which included re-branding and renaming to Billingshurst & Horsham Chamber of Commerce.
Chris recognised that there was a void in Horsham and that there was an opportunity to fill it with the professional Chamber that has been offered over the years.
With many of the existing members coming from Horsham this was a natural evolution of the Chamber without forgetting the roots and membership in Billingshurst.
The renamed and re-branded Billingshurst & Horsham Chamber was officially launched at a meeting on 8th March 2018 at John Lewis in Horsham. The changes have been well received as the Chamber has grown to just under 100 members, and the networking events continue to grow in popularity.
John is looking forward to maintaining the momentum and to continuing to grow the membership. He is a keen advocate of networking and collaboration between local businesses and is looking to supplement the popular and well attended monthly networking lunches with other events that will help members expand and strengthen their business network.
