Basingstoke: Senior appointments to strengthen Hampshire Chamber

By Dan Teuton
13 January 2015

Hampshire Chamber has strengthened its team in the north of the county with two senior appointments, David Kemshall and Mark Baulch.  Both will work from the organisation’s Basingstoke office to support member businesses.

As membership manager, Kemshall will be tasked with driving member recruitment and retention. He has taken up the role following successive promotions during more than six years at clothing retailer Primark, where he was most recently a senior department manager at the chain’s Basingstoke store working with a £15 million annual budget.

Baulch has been appointed as business development manager, and will be responsible for developing the Chamber’s external profile and partnerships in north Hampshire. He was previously based in the Chamber’s Fareham office as regional coordinator for an £8m business-led partnership designed to help exporters reach high-growth markets overseas. The role involved close liaison with British Chambers of Commerce, the Government’s export support department UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Maureen Frost, Hampshire Chamber’s deputy chief executive, said: “David and Mark bring extensive experience and skills that will help us continue to improve our member services and strengthen the voice of business in the north of the county.”

Hampshire Chamber’s Basingstoke office is the Manor House at Chineham Court, designed and built in the early 1900s by the celebrated British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.

Now part of the Absolutely Offices campus complex, Manor House is the hub for all Chamber membership, events and international trade services in north Hampshire.
