Meet the Team

The board of directors, representative members of the Business Club, set the direction and the strategy but these are the people who make it all work on a day to day basis.

We’re a small team, which means everyone plays an essential part, and we all have one thing in common, a real passion about helping businesses in County Durham and the North East.  We’re based at Portland House in Durham, if you fancy a drop in we have a magic coffee machine!

So, in no particular order, here we go…

Our Membership Development Manager, Alison Gittins

Alison runs the Business Club and it wouldn’t surprise me if you know her, even if you’ve never been to any of our events.

She’s one of those people you never forget, which is a good thing most of the time.  She always says this is her dream job and you can believe that, except for a couple of days a year, after she comes back from her holidays!
