FSB announces Board of Directors to lead the organisation through critical time for small businesses

Appointments to the FSB Board of Directors have been announced at FSB’s Annual General Meeting held on 10 April in London. The FSB Board will lead the business organisation as it continues to represent the interests of the UK’s 5.6 million small businesses and self-employed at a critical time amid political uncertainties and economic pressures.

Elected to the Board of Directors are:

Mike Cherry, National Chairman – reappointed uncontested for a further three year term of office.

Martin McTague, Chairman, Policy and Advocacy – reappointed uncontested for a further three year term of office.

Dave Stallon, Commercial Director - reappointed uncontested for a further three year term of office.

Gillian MacEwan – appointed to Operations Director for a three year term of office.

Alexis Lay – reappointed to Director for a three year term of office.

Terry Lockwood – appointed to Director for a three year term of office.

FSB Chief Executive Julie Lilley said: “Congratulations to all the Board of Directors. FSB is a proudly member-led organisation and all our elected member leaders have one thing in common – they all own and run businesses.

"Our members lead from the front, working closely with a strong team of expert staff. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with the Board to deliver FSB’s corporate objectives which will help smaller businesses to achieve their ambitions.

“Small businesses are facing many challenges at this time, not least the uncertainty around the UK’s planned departure from the European Union. Ensuring that they have a strong voice that is heard in governments at all levels has never been more critical, alongside giving them access to the best services and benefits.”
