National Vice Chair of Federation of Small Businesses

Businesswoman Carol Wells has been voted as national vice chair of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).

Ms Wells is a founder member of the Objective One Business Task Force and is currently chair of this task force which works to keep the private sector at the heart of the investment Programme and was the first woman to be appointed Cornwall FSB chair. She beat off six others in the annual national elections to win her new position.

She said: "I am absolutely delighted and am looking forward to the challenge. It is an opportunity to make sure that Cornwall and the South West are near the top of the national agenda."

Carleen Kelemen director of the Objective One Partnership added: "The Partnership congratulates Carol on her new appointment, she has played a key role in ensuring private sector involvement for the Objective One Programme. We wish her all the best."

Ms Wells has been either self employed or managed small companies for more than 20 years. Since retraining in 1998 she has run a specialist technical IT training company. As well as being Chair for the Cornwall region of the FSB, before handing over to Barbara Ellenbroek so she could concentrate more on the national duties of the federation, she has been Mayor and parish councillor in St Columb Major. She also serves as a panel member for the Princes Trust on a regular basis.
