HR director becomes first female president of North East Chamber of Commerce

An HR director is to become the first female president of the North East Chamber of Commerce in its 185-year history.

Maggie Pavlou, HR director of Parkdean Holidays, said it was a great honour to be chosen.

Pavlou added that having a woman in charge was a great step forward in the right direction as, in the past, chambers had been dominated by men. “Historically, chambers have been seen as gentlemen’s clubs – populated by a 50-plus, grey suit brigade,” she said.
