SHROPSHIRE Chamber of Commerce has appointed a new vice president who is from Bishops Castle.

Piran Littleton, managing director of Jesmonite in Bishops Castle, will succeed current president Mandy Thorn when her three-year term comes to an end next summer.

Mr Littleton has been a non-executive director of the Chamber since 2019, and has more than 25 years of experience helping SMEs and corporates through training, coaching and leadership development.

“I joined the Chamber because I wanted to grow my business, and I’m passionate about raising awareness of what membership can do for businesses of all sizes, in all sectors,” he said.

“I would love every company in Shropshire to have the kind of opportunities it has brought for me, the help and support, and chance to grow both as an individual and a business, working with good, interesting and fun people.”
