Kelly Dunn, KD Recruitment, Lorraine Wilson, YorGuest Ltd, and Halina Jaroszewska, Leadership & Team Coaching, will join the board later this month, further strengthening the organisation’s representation in the people, property and business support sectors.

Chair of York Professionals, Elliot Rich, commented on the recent appointments:  "I am delighted to welcome Kelly, Lorraine and Halina to the team. Our dynamic and enthusiastic board of directors are all actively engaged in business in York, mirroring York Professionals membership sectors, each bringing a different set of skills to the organisation. We currently have over 170 businesses in membership and are so much more than just a network - we are a community of professionals who want to prosper, see the city’s economy flourish and we all play an active role in making that happen.”
