John Poole, Managing Director of Oakham Research was elected Vice Chairman of the Black Country Branch of the Federation of Small Businesses at the recent AGM. John has been an active Committee Member over the last 12 months and has also served on the Staffordshire & West Midlands Regional Committee.
“Small Businesses make up a vital part of the economy and are key to driving forward both economic growth and sustainable employment. The FSB are a key player in ensuring that small businesses get the opportunity to grow and prosper. My involvement in the FSB runs parallel to the support we provide to our clients here at Oakham Research. While the FSB supports small businesses through lobbying on their behalf and a range of specific value for money products, Oakham Research allows businesses who otherwise would not have the ability to undertake research to gain competitive advantage through cost effective solutions.
I’d like to thank members for having the faith in my abilities to vote me into the role of Vice Chairman. I’m committed to provide a professional and effective approach to carrying out my duties over the next 12 months with the aim of making the Black Country Branch a vibrant and useful resource for small businesses locally.”
