After leading Chamber International for more than 15 years, and taking it from being a local export documentation office to an organisation that offers a sophisticated range of specialist international trade support services, Tim Bailey has been made a Fellow of The Institute of Export & International Trade.

The Institute of Export & International Trade director general, Lesley Batchelor, announced the award at a celebratory graduation event attended by 200 invited guests including president of The Institute of Export & International Trade, Lord Stephen Green of Hurstpierpoint; vice president of The Institute of Export & International Trade, Lord Reg Empey; The Rt.Hon. Mayor of London, Alderman, Dr Andrew Parmley and chairman of The Institute of Export & International Trade, Ian Taylor.

Tim Bailey’s appointment is one of only two fellowships announced by The Institute of Export & International Trade this year.

Lesley Batchelor said: “We are delighted to welcome Tim as a fellow of the Institute for being a tireless supporter and enthusiast of exporting, helping thousands of businesses across the country to grow and develop their exports from his base in Bradford.”
