Revitalising the Chamber

Two former presidents of the chamber - Dermot Breen and Martin Traynor OBE - have come forward to help fill the vacant managerial roles.

THE Loughborough Chamber of Trade and Commerce has been saved thanks to two former presidents who have come together to re-form a 'dream team.'

The Echo reported last month that the chamber was in danger of closing after 95 years if volunteers didn’t come forward to take on the vacant managerial positions.

Dermot Breen, who was president of the chamber from 1992-96 is to take on the role of president and Martin Traynor OBE, who was president from 1996-2000 will be the vice president - both will begin their four year term following the chamber’s AGM.

Jane Hunt will also take on the role of secretary and Max Boden will take on the role of treasurer.

The chamber has represented businesses in Loughborough since 1922 and is often seen as a first stop consultee on business issues by Charnwood Borough Council.

Dermot and Martin will take over from Carol Whipham and Caroline Nash who have been the chamber’s main leaders for the last four years.

In past presidencies Dermot and Martin have been key players in initiatives such as the town’s CCTV scheme, the pedestrianisation of Market Place and Market Street, the redevelopment of Baxter Gate and the refurbishment of Loughborough train station.
