Sharon Seville, director of First Executive Recruitment, has recently become Stockport Local President for Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.

She has been a member of the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (Stockport) for more than 10 years.

Sharon said: “Since then my business has drawn on the resources the chamber has to offer and I’ve watched it evolve over the years to meet the changing needs of its members and the wider business community.”

In December 2019, she became vice president, which enabled her to be actively involved in various local partnerships and relationships while representing the chamber as a voice for business within Stockport.

This has included The Economic Resilience Forum, Town Improvement, Economic Alliance and Manufacturing and Engineering Forums.

She said: “Like so many organisations in the last 12 months, we have had to adapt and change the way we do things during the pandemic. The agility of our organisation to move from physical meetings and face-to-face networking to virtual networking and support for our members has been the challenge we have met head on. It has allowed us to carry on the work we are good at.”

Sharon added: “As President my key focus will be to strengthen relationships between the chamber, the council, businesses and the wider community in Stockport.

“I want us to be more visible and accessible to our members and our partnerships. I want us to engage and contribute to the creation of opportunities we have as a region.”

Stockport Council welcomed Sharon’s appointment. Caroline Simpson, deputy chief executive at Stockport Council, said: “Having worked with Sharon on Stockport’s Economic Resilience Forum to support local businesses to survive the pandemic, I know that her appointment as Stockport Local President is brilliant news for the borough’s businesses, the local community, the chamber, and the council.”
