Julia Chanteray, President

Brighton & Hove Chamber chooses new leader

Brighton businesses this week are welcoming a new leader of the city's Chamber of Commerce, following the election last Thursday of local businesswoman Julia Chanteray as president for the next three years.

Whilst the Chamber members were pleased to elect Julia Chanteray as president, they also bade goodbye at last week's AGM to outgoing president, Julie Stanford, after her three productive years in the post. Julie will continue to serve as an executive member.

Julia Chanteray will be familiar to many local business owners and certainly to Chamber members, having served as its vice president for the last two years. Like all Chamber executives, Julia is a volunteer and runs her own company, The Joy of Business, which provides business support, advice and mentoring.

The Chamber has been extremely active in the recent difficult economic conditions with its Business Lifebelt programme - a series of events to help Brighton & Hove's businesses through the recession.

“The fact that the Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce is thriving is a reflection of how well this city’s businesses are doing,” said Julia after her election. “The last two years haven’t been easy and some companies have really struggled, but Brighton & Hove is now punching above its national weight in economic revival and business growth. We entered the recovery earlier than Britain as a whole and we’re now growing strongly.”

Julia's plans for the year ahead include more business and social events, further training opportunities, building on the current Business Lifebelt support, more online activity, and a new business-to-business marketing initiative called ‘Marketplace’. For more details visit the Chamber's website:

The AGM also elected two vice presidents, Lorraine Bell and Fay MacDonald, and nine executive members. Peter Jenkins remains as the third vice president.
