East Midlands Chamber has revealed the identity of its next chairman.

Kevin Harris, managing partner at RSM UK Kevin, will succeed incumbent chair Ian Morgan OBE on 1 February 2023.

Mr Harris, a former chamber president, who recently stepped down as chairman of the Leicester and Leicestershire Local Enterprise Partnership after four years, said: “It has been a fantastic experience working closely with the region’s leading business representation network both in my role as a non-executive director and via RSM UK’s strategic partnership with the chamber.

“I am now hugely excited about the opportunity to become more embedded within the organisation.

“Ian has done a sterling job during his four years as chair of the board and I hope to build on the solid foundations he has set, including using the financial strength of the chamber to further invest in supporting businesses and communities across the region.”

Mr Morgan said: “In passing the baton on to Kevin Harris, I know the chamber is in very good hands.

“Kevin is a long-standing board member; a recent past president and he is part of the organisation’s very DNA.

“The local business community could not have anyone more experienced or dedicated to the future of local business than Kevin and I wish him every success.”
