Changes at the Chamber

Friday 12th April, 2024

We are very sad to announce that Diogo Rodrigues, our Bridgwater Chamber Manager is moving on to pastures new. Diogo has made the hard decision to step down from his current role with the chamber due to family business commitments but will continue with the chamber as a board member.

Diogo has been a positive force for the chamber since joining in July 2022, overseeing the continued success of the annual Sedgemoor Business Awards, as well as Bridgwater’s first Business Expo in 2023 and the launch of our printed newsletter.

Gavin Roberts, current Chair of Bridgwater Chamber commented, “It’s never great to see someone so valued leaving, but Diogo does so with our blessings, we understand, as business owners ourselves, that sometimes you must make hard decisions, but we fully support Diogo and his partner’s new business venue here in Bridgwater.

All of the board and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Diogo for the huge amount of effort put in and the positive impact he has made for the chamber and businesses of Bridgwater.”

Diogo commented, “It’s not a decision that I took lightly, as I have loved being part of the chamber team. Together we have achieved so many positive things for the businesses of Bridgwater and I am glad to be able to still have an input as a board member going forward”.

The chamber is now actively recruiting for a new Relationship Manager to help the chamber move forward with the chamber, with great events from the Sedgemoor Business Awards, The Bridgwater Business Expo and so much more currently in our busy calendar.
