A Warm Welcome to Moira Wilson, Chair of the Scottish Borders Chamber of Commerce
We would like to take the opportunity to introduce your new Chair, Moira Wilson. Reflecting recently on her new role, Moria said:
"My parents moved to the Scottish Borders in the ’70s and I remember growing up in an area thriving with industry and bustling high streets. Times change and sadly many of these companies have long since closed their doors. However, over recent years I have witnessed the growth of established employers and the introduction of new and exciting businesses in the Scottish Borders, all of whom are major contributors to the economy of not only the area but Scotland and the UK.
"Having worked closely with businesses in the Scottish Borders for over 10 years, I have an in-depth understanding of the challenges they face. Whether that be from the lack of specialist talent available locally, to the difficulties that our infrastructure causes when moving products to market and the impact public transport has on accessing work.
"Being born in the Borders, in addition to being a business owner and mother, I have more than a vested interest in the stability and growth of this area. I feel very privileged to have been bestowed with the honour of Chairperson for the Scottish Borders Chamber of Commerce, representing the needs and interests of every business in this area and being your voice on a local and national level. Let’s work together to create memories for new and future generations."
