The ‘new’ UK Chamber is today able to unveil its new London Bridge premises at 30 Park Street, SE1 9EQ; its first rebranding since 1991; a new, more user friendly and responsive website.
UK Chamber President, Helen Deeble, said today: “I am delighted to see this successful conclusion of the UK Chamber review and to see all the changes we have worked towards come together in this celebration with members and stakeholders.
“Our thanks go to Chief Executive Angus Frew who has led this process over the last three years, and to Director General Mark Brownrigg and all the UK Chamber team for making it happen.
“We can now focus fully on our core purpose on behalf of UK shipping in ensuring a stable and international competitive business environment whilst maintaining world class standards.”
The UK Chamber of Shipping’s new home is in Park Street, at the heart of thriving Bankside, just by Borough Market. Following consultation and research with members, the UK Chamber now aims to deliver a new and contemporary visual identity that brings together its new premises, the new website and all its communications.
The UK Chamber’s new website, also launched today, is designed to be user friendly and responsive, being able to automatically adapt the display of information for all media including use on tablets or smartphones. The website intends to help visitors find out about important issues easily and get in touch with the UK Chamber. A new members-only area of the website is also in the pipeline and will be launched in coming months.
UK Chamber members were yesterday granted a preview of the organisation’s new look and Ms Deeble thanked the member companies for their input: “Over recent months, we have listened to everything you had to say and acted on it.
“The UK Chamber today is proactive, approachable and focused on championing and protecting the needs of our members who are so crucial to the UK shipping industry. The new logo, website and premises acknowledge the history of the UK Chamber, but reflect clearly the professionalism and expertise that are so valued by our members.”
