Worthing & Adur Chamber appoints new President and Chief Exec!

At the 84th Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 18th of May at Rooms Worthing it was announced that Tony Hedger from A&T Business Associates is the incoming President of Worthing & Adur Chamber and Tracie Davey, previous Operations Manager for the Chamber will be taking on the role of Chief Exec of Worthing & Adur Chamber.
Tony has been a member of the Chamber since 2009 and been on the Executive Committee for 11 years and been a Vice President for a number of years. 

Tony commented “Having been a Vice President for a number of years, it feels like the right time to step up and take on the role from Chay after what has been a very unusual couple of years. We are far from being over these challenges, but the Chamber has continually evolved like many of our members. I am very keen to grow the Chamber membership and improve what the Chamber offers its members.” 

Tracie started at the Chamber 14 years ago, working just 2 hours a week alongside running her own retail business. Tracie became an integral part of the team and after selling her business 11 years ago, became the Operations Manager. During lockdown, Tracie worked hard to adapt the Chamber’s services to a virtual world, introducing many different types of online events and support workshops. 

Tracie’s aims and ambitions for the Chamber are to continue the growth of membership, regularly reviewing and developing the membership benefits, providing an increased variety of networking opportunities and events. To look at how the Chamber can continue to evolve, stay fresh and bring in new and relevant ways of engaging with our members. The Chamber is all about collaborating, highlighting strengths and opportunities and championing its members. Her vision is for the Chamber to be the first organisation businesses turn to for support locally. 

Tracie commented “I’m really looking forward to be taking on the role of Chief Exec, it’s a really exciting time for the Chamber. With an increased team, we will be able to build on the great work we have done over the past two years and ensure the Chamber continues to evolve and adapt to meet the needs of our amazing local business community.”
