The pair took office at the organisation’s annual meeting.

The date wasn’t lost on the woman who moved up to the area from Kent. She said: “It’s an honour to be elected as president – and on International Women’s Day!
“The Chamber has been very good to me in helping me get to know lots of local businesses.
“The region is a great place to live and work and there’s a lot going on and we have the right people in the Chamber to get our voices heard.
“I look forward to working with businesses throughout my year in office”.
Her vice president, Kathy, of KF Associates, is a business support facilitator who is also looking forward to her new role with the Chamber, having previously chaired the North Lincolnshire Area Council.
Mr Ascough said he had been proud to represent the Humber as the business gateway to Europe, noting that the Government was just beginning to address the big issues of Brexit. “I hope we can achieve an international trade environment which supports business without tariffs,” he said.
