Carol Wells elected to national seat for second year running

Cornwall-based business woman Carol Wells has been re-elected for a second year running as national vice chair of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).

Carol, who is also chair of the FSB Cornwall region, was re-elected at the FSB's AGM in London on Thursday March 13th.

She said: "I am delighted that FSB members have continued to support me in my work to promote the interests of small businesses. This re-election will also ensure I can continue to bring the region's business issues to the national agenda.

"With the Convergence investment programmes having begun in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, these are exciting times for businesses to influence the shape of their future economy and any national attention can only be good news."

Carol was one of the key private sector members who worked to ensure that Objective One – the EU investment programme prior to Convergence – was successful.

Carleen Kelemen, Director of the Objective One Partnership, said: "Once more I congratulate Carol on her election as vice chair. For years she has been dedicated to encouraging business support and the continuation of this national appointment can only bring benefit to Cornwall's many small businesses."

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 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.
