A new senior business development and relationship manager has been appointed to develop membership in the Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth Chambers of Commerce.
Chris Brewerton joins the Chamber from Birmingham City Football Club (BCFC), where he held a number of business development and commercial roles for five years.
Chris obtained bachelor’s degree in Journalism and History at the University of Chester and was a press officer at Hednesford Town FC for five years.
He will utilise his business experience and knowledge to grow and develop the presence of the Chambers among the business community in Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth.
“I am actively looking to build new relationships in this role, to help embed the Chambers in the fabric of these areas and build the profile of businesses in these areas too.”
Saying that he is passionate about “helping businesses improve, succeed and grow” Chris added:
“There is a real buzz that you get from connecting businesses. Seeing them succeed and gain fruitful returns from connections you’ve made with or for them is fantastic.
“I’ve always wanted to work with the Chambers, as it is the epitome of finding that buzz.
“My passion is helping businesses improve, succeed and grow – that is what I am going to do in Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth alongside their presidents Katie Hale and James Blackman, and the fantastic boards in those regions.
“I want to work closely with these individuals and businesses, to help them achieve their goals and grow their businesses.
“If we help grow these businesses and grow their presence, we will also grow the presence of the Chamber too – an overall win for the business community in Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth.”
Paul Faulkner, chief executive of the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, of which the three regional Chambers are a part, said:
“We are delighted to welcome Chris to the Chamber team.
“He has a wealth of experience, a fantastic personality and hunger for helping businesses to grow and develop, and I am sure that he will play a key role in helping the Chambers in Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth expand their presence and activity in the period ahead.”
