Newport Chamber Council appoints local business woman

14.10.2011

The South Wales Chamber of Commerce has announced that it has appointed local business woman Liz Maher to the Newport Chamber Council.

The council, which meets bi-monthly, discusses the issues affecting businesses in Newport and Gwent and how these might be tackled through the Chamber’s activities. The council provides a channel through which Chamber members can raise any issues, concerns or ideas; helping to shape the Chamber’s policy development and service offering to ensure that it always remains relevant to the needs of the local business community.

Liz Maher, VAT Director of Centurion VAT said: “I have been a member of the South Wales Chamber of Commerce for a number of years and was very keen to be a part of the council.

“As a council member I feel that I have a part to play in expanding businesses in Newport. It is a crucial time for the city, following the success of the Ryder Cup and now faced with the possible closure of the Passport Office and I hope that we as a Chamber will be able to help protect other businesses in Newport.”

Liz is also a keen supporter of Young Enterprise and hopes to combine her work with young people and her role on the council, “I believe that the council has a crucial role in supporting young entrepreneurs and start up companies.

“A great many businesses in the Newport area could benefit from being a part of the Chamber. Through networking events it can help companies to promote its services to new clients and the benefits of the discounted services available are invaluable, especially for smaller organisations looking for ways to grow.”
