Statement on LCCI CEO Mr David Frost

Wednesday 24 July 2019

The Chairman of the Board of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Jeff Adams, said: 

"With the agreement of our Board, LCCI has agreed to release David Frost from his contract as CEO to take-up a position with the new Government.  

The reasons that Prime Minister Johnson has invited David to serve in government are why LCCI was so keen to bring David in as our Chief Executive earlier this year. 

David’s diplomatic, international trade, and business experience is extensive. LCCI has no doubt he will be a key asset to the UK in the next stage of the Brexit negotiations.

We wish him all the best in the new role, and he knows from his time with us that London, like all the chambers in our national network, are keen to see a Brexit scenario that ensures businesses will be able to continue to flourish and grow”.

ENDS

The LCCI Board has appointed our Deputy CEO, Peter Bishop, as interim Chief Executive.
