James Davey has been named as the new chairman of ISSBA, the Ipswich and Suffolk Small Business Association, taking over the role from Roger Barcham, who stepped down last month due to a short-term health issue.

Mr Davey, of Assist With Solutions, has a wide range of management skills in areas including business planning, financial management, business turnaround and profit improvement.

“James has been an ISSBA committee member for five years and has been a loyal and hardworking member of the committee,” said Mr Barcham. “I wish him every success for the future and know he will do a fantastic job in driving the future growth of ISSBA.”

Mr Davey added: “I am delighted to become the new chair of ISSBA at what is a very exciting time for the organisation.

“Our flagship event, the Suffolk Business Exhibition, once again proved that Suffolk has some great businesses and ISSBA is just about that, supporting and encouraging small businesses to flourish.
