New chairman for Coventry & Warks business forum

One of Coventry’s leading business forums has appointed a new chairman.

Jon Wilby, Head of Litigation at Coventry-based solicitors Band Hatton Button, will be juggling his day job alongside being the face of C&W First until October 2020.

New chairman for Coventry & Warks business forum

C&W First is a forum exclusively run by and for professional and financial services firms in Coventry and Warwickshire – it has more than 40 members which range from entrepreneurial start-ups to family firms and global organisations.

His new role will see him representing the forum at events and developing a strategy to build the forum’s membership and profile.

Jon is a founding member of C&W First since it launched in 2005, and has been a board member since 2015.

He said: “Coventry and Warwickshire is going through a period of resurgence with a lot of external investment coming into the region, so there has never been a better time to be representing the interests of Coventry and Warwickshire’s professional services community.

“My focus as C&W First Chairman is to build further relationships for the forum with other business and community leaders in the region at a time of great opportunity.

“I’m especially looking forward to hosting a breakfast briefing alongside Andy Street in January, and builds upon the fantastic recent events held with the leaders of Coventry City Council and Warwickshire County Council.”
