Norfolk Chamber of Commerce has made two senior-level appointments to help lead the organisation.
Ian Hacon has become president, with Jonathan Cage taking up the role of vice-president.
Both appointments were made from within the chamber’s board.
The moves mean Davina Tanner, general manager of intu Chapelfield, will step down as president of the Norfolk chamber.
Mr Hacon is the chief executive of Blue Sky Leisure, a tourism group operating holiday parks, restaurants and park home developments across Norfolk.
The group owns Kelling Heath Holiday Park near Weybourne, its sister park, Woodhill, at East Runton, and also owns and operates the three Zaks Fine American Restaurants in and around Norwich.
Mr Cage is the managing director of Create Consulting Engineers, which provides engineering and environmental consultancy on land and property development.
He is also the chairman of the chamber’s planning and development group and represents the Norfolk chamber for the New Anglia LEP transport forum.
Great Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis has hailed the town’s growing significance as an energy hub after the arrival of a new offshore business bringing the promise of 100 jobs over the next three years.
