Chris Plant takes up new senior role at neighbouring Chambers of Commerce

Chris Plant has bid a final farewell to the Cannock Chase and Burton & District Chambers of Commerce after ten years as divisional director as he now prepares to join his third Chamber, this time as deputy chief executive of Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce.

Chris Plant originally started his career as an apprentice marketing and events coordinator for Southern Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce in 2008, having also previously worked in business support for Lichfield District Council. 

After moving to Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC) as marketing manager, Chris was approached for a senior role as divisional director for both the Cannock and Burton Chambers, a position he has dedicated himself to for the last 10 years.

Moving on to pastures new, Chris will be joining the Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce in March as deputy chief executive, a role that will reward and consolidate his history of being ‘Chamber through and through’.

In his parting words, Chris said:

“I am so honoured to have led the Cannock Chase and Burton & District Chambers for the past ten years and to have worked with such an incredible team who truly have the best interests of the region’s businesses at heart.

“I am and have always been Chamber through and through. The Chamber has invested in me, and I am privileged to have been offered a position I just couldn’t refuse as deputy chief executive at Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce.

“Despite my move, I’m not going too far and would like to extend my continued support to the Chamber family and to all of our members.I also wish my successor the very best of luck and will rest assured that they will inherit a brilliant divisional council to assist them in supporting our fantastic member businesses.”
