Milton Keynes Chamber has welcomed a new non-executive director to the board.

Julie Bean, of The Business Box, is the latest addition to the seven-strong board, following rigorous interview by Chamber chief executive Paul Griffiths and newly appointed President Paul Musselle.

The business owner said she applied for the post in order to “give back” to the Chamber after the organisation supported her business development training firm’s growth during her membership.

Julie said: “Wow, I’m delighted and honoured to be joining the board as a non-executive director.

“For me, the reasons for applying for the position are really simple, in the six years I have been in business Milton Keynes Chamber, has paid an integral part in supporting the growth of The Business-Box, through the networking and business exhibitions that it provides.

“More than this, the free services which I have accessed have been invaluable to me as a growing business. Certainly the Legal and HR services have provided great advice when needed over the years.

“So, for me it was time to see if I could give back and help support Paul and his team in their future endeavours, whilst providing a viewpoint of a member and advocating for the benefits of the Chamber from a real viewpoint.”

Paul Griffiths added: “It is with pleasure that I welcome Julie to join the Chamber’s board of directors. Julie has always been a great advocate of our Chamber and all that we stand for and I am delighted to be able to give her the opportunity to continue to do this in an official capacity.”
