New appointments help meet growing export demand

12 May 2014

Three new appointments have boosted the Chamber International team to help meet growing demand for export support services.

New international trade services manager, Michealla Platts, oversees our export office team, including taking responsibility for our fast-growing export ‘order-to-final-delivery’ service which is relied on daily by new-to-export companies and seasoned overseas traders.

Michealla has considerable exporting expertise having previously spent 20 years dealing with exports in the automotive sector and as an account manager with textile testing equipment manufacturer, James Heal, Halifax, where she was responsible for high-volumes of overseas consignments.

International trade administrator, Hayley Nutt, who gained a Batchelor of Arts degree at the University of Huddersfield, and is also a qualified business administrator, joins from a neighbouring Chamber of Commerce.

Before joining Chamber International, Rachel Ellis, worked for the largest UK-owned logistics provider, Wincanton PLC, as part of a team responsible for global supply chain services to Marks & Spencer.

The appointments follow former international sales director, David Attia, joining Chamber International as a senior associate.

Chamber International trade director, Tim Bailey, says: “We looked long and hard to find the very best people we could attract into these roles which will significantly increase our ability to help the region increase its share of global trade.”
