The South African Chamber of Commerce UK today shares the departure of Alison Kingsley-Hall from her role as Chief Executive Officer. Alison has decided that her plans lie outside the Chamber and has made the difficult decision to leave this role.
Although short, Alison’s period at the Chamber was marked by a willingness to engage in many aspects of the Chamber. “Alison’s energy and fresh perspectives were welcomed, and we are thankful for her input,” said Sharon Constancon, Chairman of the SA Chamber of Commerce UK. “We respect her decision and support her continued passion for fostering trade, investment, and collaboration between the UK, South Africa, and across the African continent.”
Alison expressed her commitment to her mission: “I remain dedicated to the work that supports our shared interests and will continue to advocate for the unique value that such international relationships offer. I wish the SA Chamber of Commerce (UK) great success in the future.”
The Chamber’s Board of Directors is considering the succession, to build upon the solid foundation laid by its leaders, past and present. In the interim, the Chamber’s operations continue as normal.
The SA Chamber of Commerce UK stands firm in its mission and assures members and partners that its dedication to strengthening business ties remains unwavering.
Further announcements regarding the new leadership will be made in due course. The Chamber is eager to welcome a new CEO with the enthusiasm and dedication characterising our esteemed organisation.
