Walker Wood become Patron of East Midlands Chamber

We are delighted to announce that we have become Patrons of East Midlands Chamber of Commerce. 

The Chamber Patronage coincides with our planned expansion into the East Midlands region, and the opening of our new Derby office, in addition to our Sheffield head office. Chamber Patrons include organisations keen to take an influential and prominent role in the local business community and share the values that drive the Chamber forward.

Scott Knowles, Chamber Chief Executive, says: “I am delighted to welcome Walker Wood into Patronage. Chamber Patrons are a powerful force in influencing policy, driving economic growth and development and equipping smaller businesses with the knowledge and skills that are vital to their future.

“Walker Wood will bring to the Chamber skills and expertise to complement those of the other Patrons to evolve something which is, together, greater than the sum of its parts.”

Richard Wood, Director at Walker Wood, said: “We are excited to become Patrons of the East Midlands Chamber. This is a great opportunity for us to work alongside other like-minded businesses and to contribute towards the growth and success of the East Midlands region and to be at the heart of business within the area.”

The Chamber has 37 Patrons, including DHL Express, East Midlands Airport, Experian, The Money Shop, Wilko and Santander.

East Midlands Chamber currently holds the prestigious British Chamber of the Year Award, and was also awarded Disability Confident Leader status in March 2019.
