New home marks new chapter for Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce

Posted on by Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce of Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce

New premises herald the next chapter for the county’s Chamber of Commerce, as it sets out its vision to support business growth in 2022 and beyond.

Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce has moved to York House in Salisbury Square, a landmark building at the heart of the regeneration of Old Hatfield.

The new premises provide the Chamber with a larger base, reflecting its plans for further growth. The Chamber was recently named the fastest growing in the UK by the British Chambers of Commerce.

The Chamber remains at the heart of the county, and its proximity to the A1 and Hatfield train station means it is well placed to continue to support more businesses in Hertfordshire.
The move comes as the Chamber continues with growing success since 2019. The vision and plans for 2022 are just as innovative, and ambitious to connect collaborate and grow the businesses in the county.

To support the increase in membership, the Chamber has announced it is recruiting for a new business executive, marketing and communications executive and administration assistant.

The Chamber’s CEO, Briege Leahy, said: “Our new, larger premises reflect the ambition of the Chamber and the role it has to play in the future of business in the county.

“As businesses look to the future and start to recover from the impact of the pandemic, we are in a position to offer more companies vital support to underpin the county’s growth.”
The Chamber’s new home in Salisbury Square – an area which is set to become a hub for retail and business – features a better layout for teams to work alongside each other. These include key staff in business development, HR, event and communications, finance and international trade.

Anthony Downs, Estate Director at Hatfield Park, said: “We are delighted that the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce have chosen to join the flourishing business community within Old Hatfield and Hatfield Park. York House, a three-storey workspace, is at the heart of the Old Hatfield regeneration area and the Chamber are a welcome addition to what is fast becoming a recognised Hertfordshire business hub. Further plans, which will see additional new commercial space within Salisbury Square will add further vibrancy providing both valuable employment opportunities for the County and a first-class gateway to Hatfield.”

Following the Chamber’s move from MacLaurin Building in Bishop Square, it will retain the important and intrinsic links with the University of Hertfordshire through the business consortium which includes the county’s Local Enterprise Partnership and Hertfordshire Growth Hub.
