Over the last three years, Paul, as an experienced business leader, has been central in enabling and driving growth in Welsh businesses, both at home and on the international market. Paul has been a board member and Director of Chambers Wales since 2018, and stepped into the role of President in January 2020.
Rachelle Sellek, Chamber board member and Partner at Acuity Law, said: “Paul’s contribution to Chambers Wales and the commitment he has shown to championing businesses here in Wales has been invaluable. He has worked tirelessly to help our members and support the business community and for that we are very grateful. We wish him every success for the future.”
Paul Slevin said: “Having stepped up to the role of President in January 2020, little did I know that just a few short months later, we would find ourselves in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, followed closely by a cost-of-living crisis that has been devastating for the economy and businesses across Wales.
“It has been my absolute privilege to guide and support our members through some of the most difficult times I’ve seen for the business community and I’m incredibly proud of the progress we have made.
“I now feel it’s my time to move on and pursue other challenges and thank our members for their support during my time in this role.”
