She was elected as President at this week's AGM, replacing Barrie Baxter, who had held the position since 2018.

"It is a huge honour to become the first female president of the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce, and I would like to thank Barrie for his excellent work and commitment over the past two years," said Ms Gray.

"As an organisation, Chamber continues to play an incredibly important role in Guernsey's business community, representing businesses across all industries and sectors in relation to the latest issues and opportunities affecting them.

"No challenge is more pressing than Guernsey's ongoing response and recovery to the global coronavirus pandemic so we look forward particularly to representing members in our work with government on Guernsey's 'Revive and Thrive' strategy."
