Chamber is delighted to announce that Elaine Gray has been formally appointed new President for a two-year term at this week’s AGM. In addition, the ever-growing organisation now also includes a Board presence for Jane St Pier, Clare Carre and Diane de Garis as members of Exec.
With almost 700 members employing around 18,000 members of staff, the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce is the island’s largest business network, supporting local business from sole traders to international corporations.
Elaine, who is partner and head of the Carey Olsen Guernsey dispute resolution and litigation team, has served as Vice President of the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce for the past year.
She said: “It is a huge honour to become the first female president of the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce, and I would like to thank Barrie Baxter for his excellent work and commitment over the past two years. As an organisation, Chamber continues to play an incredibly important role in Guernsey’s business community, representing businesses across all industries and sectors in relation to the latest issues and opportunities affecting them. No challenge is more pressing than Guernsey’s ongoing response and recovery to the global coronavirus pandemic so we look forward particularly to representing members in our work with government on Guernsey’s ‘Revive and Thrive’ strategy.”
