New faces appointed to leading roles at Fife Chamber of Commerce
A new president and vice-president have been elected at Fife Chamber of Commerce.
Fife Chamber of Commerce members elected Janet McIntyre as president and Colin Brown as vice-president at their online AGM.
Janet is a commercial property partner at Thorntons Solicitors, and takes over from Brian Horisk, director of Horisk Leslie Developments.
Janet said: “Fife Chamber is an amazing organisation with a team which is passionate about what it does, and the members it supports.
"The vaccine rollout has been a game changer and there are early signs that the Scottish economy is on the right path to recovery, although much has still to be done for the economy to properly bounce back. Given this, our goal will be to continue to grow and develop the Chamber during this period of economic recovery for the benefit of Fife’s businesses and the communities they serve and support.”
Colin Brown is a director in the property division of Burness Paull LLP.
He said: “All of us have been impacted by Covid-19, and it has been great to watch Fife Chamber continue to support all our members over the last year.
"For many businesses in Fife the last 15 months has seen their ability to generate income severely compromised.
"The support offered by the United Kingdom and Scottish Governments has allowed these businesses to still be around.
“As the economy begins to recover from the second Scottish lockdown my hope is businesses in Fife can get back to what they do best and help the economy grow and our communities thrive.”
