New Chamber Chief Executive Announced

Monday 14 May 10:53

A new Chief Executive of The Jersey Chamber of Commerce has been appointed. Murray Norton will officially take up the post on May 23rd when his time as a States Member comes to an end.

Murray  brings  with  him  significant  business  experience,  having  run  several  successful businesses in Jersey.  Most recently, having been elected as Deputy for St Brelade in 2014, he  held  the  post  of  Assistant  Minister  for  Economic Development,  Tourism,  Sport  and Culture at the States of Jersey with full responsibility for Culture and Heritage.  He was also responsible for Trading Standards and Consumer Affairs and the Channel Island Lottery, as well as sitting on the panel for the Housing and Work Advisory Group.

Murray is looking forward to running the island’s largest, independent business membership organisation  and  has  this  to  say  ahead  of  taking  up  the  position:  ‘I  am  passionate  about promoting and enabling commerce in Jersey.  Chamber exists to support, inform and enable its  Members  to  contribute  to  a  buoyant  economy,  which  benefits  the  whole  island.  I  am delighted  to  have  been  appointed  to  the  role  of  Chief  Executive  of  Chamber.   As  a businessman myself, I understand the challenges faced by our Members and having worked within  the  States  Chamber,  I  offer  a  unique  insight  on  how  to get  results  for  commerce through  effective  engagement  with  our  Government  and  look  forward  to representing Chamber members.’

President of The Jersey Chamber of Commerce, Eliot Lincoln, has this to say: ‘Murray brings a unique perspective to Chamber that we feel will be particularly useful for our Members.  He is  a  passionate  businessman  with  a  pragmatic  approach to  getting  results  for  Chamber Members.   We  look  forward  to  continuing  our  successful  lobbying  record  and  business events programme.’
