Alison Orrells, CBI Wales Chair, CEO, The Safety Letterbox Company, said:

I’m excited to Chair CBI Wales. I am acutely aware of the challenges experienced by businesses, in particular SMEs, and how lack of resources can often stifle their growth. My experience of running a business through Brexit, COVID-19, a recession and a cost of living crisis will help firms through uncertain times.

“As one of the few female CEOs in the UK manufacturing sector, I want to challenge the barriers that prevent women from succeeding in business. Equality and diversity are paramount, and I look forward to supporting diversity initiatives such as CBI Wales’s Women in Leadership network.”
