New chairman unveiled to drive forward Hull's success
THE new chairman of Hull and East Yorkshire Bondholders is preparing to take over the reins of the organisation at a crucial period in the region's development.
Goole-based entrepreneur Peter Aarosin has been unveiled today as the man taking over from current chairman Jim Dick, who stepped in to save the organisation promoting the city and surrounding areas following the demise of Hull Forward.
Mr Dick, who said he would do the role "for a year", has now been at the forefront of the scheme for almost three years, leading it as it moved to a private sector-led model. During that time, membership has increased from about 130 members to 172.
Mr Aarosin, whose companies operate in the shipping, logistics and renewables sectors on both banks of the Humber as well as in Europe, said: "It is quite an ask for me to follow in Jim's footsteps as he has led the organisation selflessly for a very long time.
