Towering success as Humber Bridge Board crosses into Chamber membership

Sean Chaytor and Ian Kelly – stronger relationship.

The Humber Bridge Board is the latest organisation to become a member of the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce.

Chair of the Board Sean Chaytor signed on the dotted line with Chamber Chief Executive Dr Ian Kelly during a recent meeting. The Bridge’s boardroom is a venue that has hosted numerous Chamber meetings over the years.

The Humber Bridge is an iconic landmark in the region, and is an integral part of the Chamber’s logo and all of its branding as it unites the two halves of the Hull & Humber Chamber area.

The bridge took eight years to build, during which time upwards of one thousand workers were employed at times of peak activity. Traffic first crossed the bridge on 24th June 1981 and Her Majesty the Queen, the patron of the British Chambers of Commerce, performed the formal opening ceremony on 17th July 1981.

Today the bridge carries more than 10-million vehicles a year and is a vital link for business across the Humber.

Welcoming the announcement, Ian Kelly said: “We are delighted to welcome the Humber Bridge as a much-valued and highly symbolic member of the Chamber as it provides such a vital link for business and commerce between the north and south banks of the estuary.

“Their membership and involvement in Chamber activities will serve to strengthen an already strong relationship between the Chamber, the Humber Bridge, and the areas we jointly serve.

Sean Chaytor, Chair of the Humber Bridge Board, said: “I am pleased that the Humber Bridge is now a member of the Chamber. We look forward to building on our relationship with Ian and his team in the coming year.”
