Driver Hire boss to steer Chamber meetings
MICHAEL O’Flynn has become the new Chair of the Chamber’s North East Lincolnshire Area Council, taking over from Mark Warburton.
Mr O’Flynn runs Driver Hire Grimsby and Scunthorpe from The Innovation Centre, on Grimsby’s Europarc and has been a member of the Chamber’s Area Council for a number of years. He takes over the role from Mark Warburton and will Chair the next meeting on June 11.
Michael was unanimously elected at a recent meeting of the Area Council. He said: “I’m very pleased to be given this important role and looking forward to chairing the meetings which are always interesting.
“I would urge any business wishing to get more involved with the wider local business community to consider joining the Hull & Humber Chamber and this committee”
From his own company’s point of view, the new chair said: “Recruiting drivers is less of an issue than it was, but the work can be a bit seasonal, although there are some permanent full-time roles available.
“I’m particularly pleased to see the Humber ports being considered as an alternative to Dover regarding Brexit and I’m hoping to see some more growth in the town this summer”.
