Andy Parkinson, Group Director of Strategy and Innovation for Spencer Group, has been appointed Chair of Bondholders marketing organisation after former leader Anita Pace stepped down.
Andy has worked for Spencer Group, one of the largest privately owned engineering firms in the UK, since June 2016 and has a varied background spanning many different areas.
In the public sector, Andy was the lead for Hull’s City Plan, a £1b economic infrastructure plan to transform the city, creating in excess of 12,000 jobs in the region.
His appointment as Chair was announced last night at the Bondholder Christmas Social.
In a speech to the audience, Andy Parkinson said:
The last few years have given the region a great platform to build on, and it is my plan that now we will cement our position in the Northern Powerhouse.
Andy Parkinson stated:
We can’t do it without you (the business community), your input and innovation as Bondholder members is vital to realise this vision. We are not going to stand still, together we will achieve great things.
Andy Parkinson said he was excited to lead Bondholders at such an important time for the region and was determined to make the Humber an internationally recognised place to live and work.
MD of Bondholders, Diana Taylor, stated:
It is great to have Andy on board to help propel the Bondholder activities forward, really build on the opportunity to represent our members and take the strong message of the Humber out on the national and international stage.
The event was held at Trinity Minster which provided a stunning backdrop to the Bondholders’ annual Christmas celebration.
