On Wednesday 19th November 2014 John Poole of Oakham Research was elected as Regional Vice Chairman, by his peers at the Staffordshire and West Midlands Region AGM of the Federation of Small Businesses. John has added this Regional Officer position to the post of Vice Chairman for the Black Country Branch. The Staffordshire and West Midlands Region is made up of the four branches of Black Country, Burton Lichfield & Tamworth, Birmingham and North Staffordshire. The Staffordshire and West Midlands Region will be hosting the FSB Annual Conference at Birmingham International Convention Centre next march.
John stated “It is an honour to serve the Staffordshire and West Midlands based members of the FSB for the next 12 months as Regional Vice Chairman. To do so in a year in which the region is hosting the Annual Conference is even more important. As I set out in my election speech, I aim to use my time as Regional Vice Chairman to campaign for less red tape and unnecessary form filling both for small businesses themselves and within the FSB. My focus will be on supporting and promoting members and bringing my particular marketing and market research skills to the assistance of the regional committee. I sincerely thank all those that voted for me at the AGM.”
