Somerset Chamber of Commerce will be bidding a fond farewell to Operations Manager Alistair Tudor on May 20. Alistair, who has worked for the Chamber since 2016, will be joining Stephens Scown Solicitors as their Senior Client Manager.
Alistair joined the Chamber as a Membership Sales Manager having spent his career working in a business-to-business sales roles, latterly with physical trading and shipping businesses globally.
In 2017, he was promoted to the role of Operations Manager, managing the Chamber team, supporting the board and Chamber leadership and forging close links with both members and the Chamber’s Business Partners.
Alistair said: “Working with the Somerset Chamber of Commerce has been an amazing experience and I’ve loved working with individuals and organisations to provide opportunities for them to develop both their organisation and their customer base.
“The sheer variety of wonderful companies across our region has meant that no two days have been the same and being in a position to support those businesses as part of the Chamber network has been an absolute privilege.
“I’m going to miss the team at the Chamber hugely. They are an enormously passionate and hard-working group and the effort that they all put into ensuring businesses in the region are connected, supported and given opportunities to grow is immense.
“Stephens Scown is already part of Somerset Chamber so I don’t need to tell them about the benefits of joining! I’m looking forward to the new challenge with the Stephens Scown team and I hope to catch up with Chamber members as a guest rather than as a host at an event very soon.”
Graeme Crosbie, Chair of the Chamber’s Board of Trustees, thanked Alistair for his hard work over the last six years and said: “Alistair has made a huge contribution to the Chamber, including guiding the team through the challenges of the pandemic.
“He has been instrumental in forging new business partnerships with key local businesses and strengthened existing relationships with companies from all sectors and of all sizes.
“It has been a pleasure to work with him during my time as a trustee of Somerset Chamber and I hope we will see him on the other side of the fence as a guest at the Chamber’s networking events in the future!”
The Chamber team wish him well in his new venture!
