College Principal Joins LDCoC Board of Directors
Members of the Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce recently gathered at Forrest Hills, Lancaster to hold the 121st annual meeting where they welcomed two new directors to the fold.
Alistair Eagles, CEO of Seatruck Ferries, was elected President for another year, and Mal Garnett, MD of Apparatus Marketing, was re-appointed as Vice-President. Alistair along with his 12 strong Board of non-executive Directors was delighted to introduce two new directors who were appointed during the meeting: Wes Johnson, Principal and Chief Executive of Lancaster & Morecambe College, and Susan Rutherford, Practice Manager of Holdens Solicitors and Chair of Lancaster BID (Business Improvement District).
Wes Johnson said of his new appointment, "Since I arrived at LMC just over a year ago I have been determined to fully align the college with our local employers’ needs. The first step was to establish Employer Advisory Groups for all of our curriculum areas, whilst then working closely with other employers to establish new curriculum to meet their needs, both now and in the future.
I am honoured to become a member of the Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce Board to ensure that I, and therefore the college, remain close to our local employers in a mutually beneficial relationship, producing the region’s future workforce and in doing so facilitating an enhanced economic wellbeing for our community."
President and Chair of the meeting, Alistair Eagles summarised the past 12 months and looks to an exciting period ahead: “The year 2017-2018 saw the Chamber celebrate 120 years since its incorporation in 1897. It has been a privilege to serve as your President for the last 12 months and be a part of that history.
The year might not have been a financial success, but it has been a successful and eventful year in so many other ways; from the growth in membership to the inaugural North Lancashire Expo. It has also laid the foundations for future successful years.
We are lucky to have such a fantastic Chamber and area with huge potential. I truly believe that we are right on the cusp of a really exciting period”.
