Appleby Partner, Caren Pegg, has been officially appointed as President of the Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce at the organisation’s annual gala dinner held at the Villa Marina on 20 September.

The dinner was attended by around 200 guests from across the Island’s business community, and was a chance to reflect on the successes achieved by the Island’s leading business network over the past 12 months, and to look ahead at Chamber’s aims and plans for initiatives to support economic growth.

Caren has been involved with Chamber for over 15 years. Speaking at the dinner, Caren thanked guests for attending, and expressed Chamber’s gratitude to all of the individuals and organisations that support the organisation. She thanked former President Chris Allen, and Chamber’s current Vice-President Kristan McDonald, for the help and support she had received from them during her work at Chamber, and acknowledged their contribution to the organisation over many years.

The theme of the gala dinner, said Caren, was ‘Let’s Grow Together’ which was chosen to reflect the fact that by working together, and collaborating as a business community, Chamber was able to help businesses of all sizes, and from all sectors, to achieve more. With less than two years to go before the next Isle of Man General Election, she added, plans are already being put in place for Chamber to consult its members about what issues they want candidates to address. Chamber will create its own manifesto in advance of the election to highlight the major priorities for business, and to challenge prospective MHKs about their views on policy issues relevant to the business community.
