Stephen Houston President Lisburn Chamber of Commerce

Congratulations to Stephen Houston, Associate Director at Hanna Thompson, who was elected President of the Lisburn Chamber of Commerce at the Chamber’s Annual General Meeting in November 2014.Congratulations also go to Hanna Thompson’s Accounts Manager Arleen Rogers who was appointed as Treasurer at the same meeting.

Stephen has been an active member of the Chamber for a number of years and is very keen to focus his presidency on increasing the organisation’s membership. He is also keen to represent the challenges and concerns of the area’s business community with key influencers and decision makers, in particular, public sector stakeholders and politicians.

“I am delighted to have been elected to lead the Chamber over the next year”, said Stephen. “2015 will be a year of major change as the local Council area expands to become Lisburn City and Castlereagh Borough Council. As the Chamber is aligned with the geographic boundary of the Council, a greatly enlarged area will create an exciting opportunity for us to grow and I look forward to engaging with business colleagues across Castlereagh to promote the benefits of Chamber membership”.
