Smith & Ouzman’s Finance Director Peter Ellis has been confirmed as a member of the Bank of England Decision Maker Panel for Brexit implications.
The Bank of England acts as an advisory body to the Government and plays a key role in managing the economy. In the wake of the Brexit vote it has launched an important initiative to engage Finance Directors from across industries and around the country to be part of a Decision Maker Panel.
The purpose of the panel is to help the Bank understand the implications of Brexit for businesses on the ground. Peter will be telling the Bank what Brexit means for Smith & Ouzman on an on-going basis as the process of leaving the EU unfolds in the years ahead.
“This is a very important initiative and I am proud to be able to contribute to the process on behalf of Smith & Ouzman,” said Peter. “Obviously, it is important to stay aware of the risks and opportunities brought about by our leaving the EU. The Bank will be giving feedback to all participants about the collective impact of developments and policy decisions as they occur, so this is a two way process which can only benefit us as a company.”
