Jonathan Cunningham, the man behind the resurrection of the Sefton Chamber of Commerce has announced he is resigning from his post.

Jonathan Cunningham, the chair of Plan B – the natural successor to the collapsed Sefton Chamber of Commerce – said the time is right for him to leave ‘his baby’ in the hands of other business owners from across the borough.

Jonathan, who also runs Storm Consultancy, told OTS News that he felt resigning from his position as chair was the best decision.

Jonathan said: “I’m delighted that after two and a half years after launching and chairing Plan B I feel it is now time to step down as chair.

“I established Plan B after the collapse of Sefton Chamber with the aim of ‘holding the line’ for its members.

“If it lasted six months then it had done its job but in fact it has, to date, lasted two and half years where it continues to grow!

“We are not for profit organisation with the aim of connecting and supporting local business.  I am immensely proud of what we have all done but feel it now needs a different leadership, drive and energy to move it to another level.

“I’m delighted that the organisation is in good financial health and Rob Uffendell and the rest of the directors have great ideas to see enhanced social media presence, advertising and the possibility of annual conferences.

“These are exciting projects that will no doubt make the difference from where we are at the moment and ultimately benefit our Plan B membership.

“I step down on great terms with my fellow directors and wish Rob, Pete and Stephen great success.

“Plan B (my baby) will always remain passionately close to my heart. It is all about supporting business and connecting business!”

“I have loved my time as chair and sincere thanks for the support and efforts from you all”.
