Chris Marsh has bee appointed as the new chairman of the Ipswich and Suffolk Small Business Assocation (ISSBA).
Mr Marsh, a director at corporate insurance brokerage Andrew Thompson & Associates in Ipswich, takes over the role from James Davey who, after a two-year term in the chair, will now become deputy chairman.
“Chris has been an ISSBA committee member for four years and has been a loyal and hardworking member of the committee, said Mr Davey. “I wish him every success for the future and know he will do a fantastic job in driving the future growth of ISSBA.”
Mr Marsh said: “I am delighted to become the new chair of ISSBA at what is a very exciting time for the organisation. Our flagship event, the Anglia Business Exhibition, once again proved that Suffolk has some great businesses and ISSBA is just about that, supporting and encouraging small businesses to flourish.
“I will continue where James has left off; he did a fantastic job and we have a lot to thank him for,” he told members.
“Both the committee members and myself look forward to meeting you at one of our events and of course watch this space on news about next years business exhibition.”
Mr Marsh added that ISSBA’s chosen charity for the next 12 months would be Fresh Start New Beginnings, which provides support for children and young people who have reported being sexually abused.
