Phil Merrick elected to Chamber of Commerce

Phil Merrick, Manager of the University of Bath in Swindon’s Innovation Centre, has been elected to the Council of the new Swindon Chamber of Commerce.

The Council will help to promote the Chamber's business support services, which range from a specialist international trade department, to lobbying, business insurance, legal advice and networking.

Mr Merrick takes on the enterprise agenda for the group and says that his appointment is a reflection of the good work that is being done at the Innovation Centre to grow important technology-based businesses in the town.

The new Chamber is part of the Thames Valley Group and the Council will be led by Alan Fletcher, area manager with HSBC.

Mr Merrick is joined on the Council by Thring Townsend partner John Davies; Honda chief engineer Mike Godfrey; Morris Owen partner Rob Harman; management consultant Barry Lingard; and Vox Public Relations' Director Sue Pycroft.

There are about 100 members of the new Chamber which is set to expand over the next few months.
