Chamber Council: Your chance to support local businesses

Chamber Council

With the application process now open for Chamber Council elections, the GBCC has decided to shine a spotlight on some of our long-serving members. This time we will be taking a look at former Chamber president Bridget Blow CBE.      

I am very proud to have been the first female president of the Birmingham Chamber in 2009 and chaired the inaugural Local Enterprise Development Board.

I have continued to serve on the Chamber Council since standing down from being President, being active in a number of ways including supporting the recruitment of the current Chief Executive and Finance Director, chairing events and mentoring.

I enjoy being involved in the work of the Chamber helping businesses to deal with the challenges of the day whatever they may be. I have a lot of past experience in business which I am always keen to put at others disposal.

In recent years I was Deputy Chairman of the Coventry Building Society, a Trustee of the Birmingham Hippodrome and Chair of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

Previously, I was Chief Executive of ITNET plc from 1994-2005 taking it from buyout through rapid growth to a full listing and subsequent sale. Other previous roles include Non-executive Director of the Bank of England and Chairman of Harvard International and Trustmarque Solutions.

In the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours I was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to Business in the West Midlands and the British Chamber of Commerce Movement which I was delighted to receive.

I would very much like to continue to support the Chamber through the next few years by being a Council Member.

The Chamber Council meets four times a year and plays a pivotal role in guiding the Chambers policy and campaigning activity. The deadline for Chamber Council applications is the 24 July. Click here to find out more and how to apply.
