Jersey Business has appointed the President of the island’s key business lobby group as its Chair.
Jennifer Carnegie, Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Operating Officer of Amicus Limited, succeeds Andy Jehan in the role.
Her appointment comes as Jersey Business looks to expand its services - including productivity improvement, marketing and e-commerce, leadership skills and wellbeing – in the wake of the pandemic.
The support service is in the process of recruiting six new roles to help with this: senior business advisor, construction industry specialist, tourism and hospitality industry specialist, programme manager, data analyst and marketing assistant.
“Having been on the Board of Jersey Business for the last three years, I’ve seen first-hand the great work the organisation delivers, and the tangible difference being made to local business,” Ms Carnegie said.
“This is an exciting opportunity: we have had increased investment from Government to enable us to grow our support to meet the demands and opportunities arising from the pandemic period.’
Economic Development Minister Senator Lyndon Farnham added: “Over the past 18 months, the dedicated and skilled team at Jersey Business has played a key role in steering the island’s business through the pandemic. We recognise that businesses will continue to need enhanced support as we emerge from the pandemic and rebuild the economy. The additional resource from the economic recovery fund will enable Jersey Business to provide additional support.”
