New President Elected to the Jersey Chamber of Commerce

Wednesday 10 May 16:15

At the Annual General Meeting today (Wednesday 10th May 2017), Eliot Lincoln became new President of the Jersey Chamber of Commerce.

At the Annual General Meeting (AGM) today (Wednesday 10th May 2017), Eliot Lincoln became President of the Jersey Chamber of Commerce.

Mr Lincoln, who is Managing Director of business consultancy firm BDO Greenlight, has served as Vice-President to outgoing President Kristina Le Feuvre since May 2015. His impressive business credentials include winning the 2012 Jersey IoD Director of the Year for a Medium Sized Business and the 2012 UK National Young Director of the Year Award for Greenlight, the business he set up in 2008. 

Mr Lincoln will preside over the Chamber of Commerce in what will be its 250th Anniversary in 2018.  As the oldest Chamber in the English-speaking world, the organisation has a fascinating heritage and there are plans for a year of celebration, events and communications designed to highlight the role it has played in the island since its formation.

Setting out his vision for the next two years, Mr Lincoln said: “Investment in education is key to the future success of Jersey. Ensuring the island produces talent that is ready to work in our economy is critical. I want Jersey to become a destination for education and will be launching Chamber’s first ‘Young Business Group’ to help the business leaders of tomorrow to meet, socialise and have a say in how the island should develop to meet the demands of the next generation.”

“Chamber will continue to lobby government for a sensible debate about population, immigration and licenses, to ensure that policy is formed with the business community in mind, not an after-thought.”

Joining the new President in heading up Chamber’s Executive Council is Mark Cox, Chief Operating Officer of the Channel Islands Co-operative Society, who will become Vice-President having served as Chair of the Chamber Retail and Supply Committee for the past two years. 

Today’s (10th May 2017) AGM also saw the nomination of two new Committee Chairs.  Ronnie Isherwood became Chair of the Digital Business Committee and Lorna Pestana, Chair of the Human Resources Committee.
