Heather Myers was appointed the Director of the South and Mid Wales Chambers of Commerce in November 2016. Her appointment comes after a four-year tenure as the CEO of one of Wales’ best loved events, the Abergavenny Food Festival.
With over 25 years’ experience of working in the public and private sector and running her own business, Heather had a strong understanding of businesses in a number of different sectors, including challenges like recruitment, the development of skilled staff, finance and marketing.
Recently named as being one of the 50 most influential business voices in Wales, her mission is to ensure that Wales is not only seen as being ‘open for business’, but as somewhere that businesses can thrive and be successful, both domestically and internationally.
Heather has a strong focus on supporting and listening to the needs of Chamber members; to provide them with clarity; to be the strong articulate and independent business voice for SME’s in Wales and to be the “go-to” provider for international and exporting trading, training and documentation.
