Shropshire Chamber of Commerce has said a big thank-you to its long-serving company secretary who has stepped down from the role after nearly a decade of service.
Ann Fisher, from Hatchers in Shrewsbury, specialises in corporate and commercial law, and took up the Chamber position in December 2013.
Ruth Ross, Shropshire Chamber’s chief executive, said: “We are hugely grateful for everything Ann has done for the Chamber over the past 10 years – and to Hatchers for allowing her the time to work with us.
“She has been invaluable in covering our Companies House duties, and in carrying out other crucial duties on our behalf such as reviewing our articles of association and code of conduct.”
Ruth visited Ann at the Hatchers offices in Shrewsbury to present her with a departing gift on behalf of the Chamber team. Going forward, her duties will be covered in-house by the Chamber team, as part of an internal restructure.
Ann studied law at Staffordshire University and the College of Law in Chester, and has specialised in corporate and commercial law since qualifying as a solicitor in 2000.
She has a particular interest in advising owner managed businesses on matters including business sales and acquisitions, start-ups, shareholder agreements, articles of association, share options, joint ventures, intellectual property, agency and distribution, manufacturing and supply agreements, e-commerce, website terms and conditions and general commercial contracts.
Ann acts for a wide range of not-for-profit organisations, including charities, schools and societies, advising on constitution, company secretarial and commercial contracts.
