New facet to Chamber membership

Paul Gibbons with John Bridge
Tuesday 7 February 2017

Paul Gibbons has joined the Chamber as Membership Development Officer to complement and enhance membership of the Chamber during our centenary year and beyond.

Paul joins us from a varied background as a sole trader and most recently working with companies providing employee benefits including Westfield Health, a Chamber partner providing packages that include cash benefits towards routine treatments such as dental and optical. His previous roles have provided him with extensive connections across the county which will benefit him in this new role.

Paul will take over from Peter Watts who has announced he wishes to retire in May having spent nine years travelling across the county meeting members to ensure they are gaining maximum benefit from their membership and recruiting new members to the Chamber network.

Speaking of his retirement, Peter Watts said:
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my nine years with the Chamber but after 51 years in employment the time is approaching for me to hang up my suit, put away the brief case and bid farewell to a hectic, sometimes chaotic business life. These past nine years have been challenging and rewarding, however family events thousands of long-haul miles away are calling. When the wanderlust subsides I will occupy my time in a flexible working capacity to allow for leisure pursuits.”

John Bridge OBE DL, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, said: “Peter has been a great ambassador for the Chamber and we wish him all the best in his retirement.

“We are delighted to welcome Paul to the team who brings a wealth of experience to the role. He already has detailed knowledge of the Chamber having been involved with us for many years.”

Members will have the opportunity to meet Paul at forthcoming Chamber events.
