Hannah Vincent, Owner-Manager of Select World Travel in Poole, has been appointed Chair of the Executive Association Solent, a club for fellow SME directors.

She was presented with the chain of office by outgoing Chair Matt Smith at the association’s monthly lunch and networking event at Chewton Glen in the New Forest.

It puts Hannah at the head of the club for the upcoming year, with Nick Phillips of Salisbury’s Barclay + Phillips Architects by her side as new Vice-Chair.

Together they’ll bring together members from almost 30 firms across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire, who each take turns to highlight opportunities and challenges in their sectors and hear from guest speakers sharing best practices and business trends.

Hannah said: “It’s an honour to chair the association for the next 12 months.

“The Executive Association Solent is very much about business intelligence foresight, rather than hindsight, along with the forging of professional introductions and connections in a highly supportive environment.”

The Executives’ Association launched in San Francisco back in 1908, with the concept soon spreading across the US, Canada and the UK.

Stuart Percival brought the club to the Solent in 1989 and remains secretary to this day as they get ready to celebrate their 34th anniversary.
