HWEnergy MD, Bruno Berardelli, has been appointed chairman of Lochaber Chamber of Commerce. Bruno received a unanimous vote at the chamber’s annual general meeting earlier this month.
Bruno, who set up HWEnergy in 2003, has always been a champion of regional business, he said “My aim as chairman is to encourage more participation from people who are already established, or in the process of setting up a business in the area, to become part of Scotland’s largest business organisation and get access to services, support and advice that will develop their ideas and promote their company’s ambitions.”
Originally from a farming background, Bruno is passionate about biomass heating and the benefits it provides for businesses but his second great passion (apart from his family of course) is supporting local businesses and developing rural economies. HWEnergy now works all over Scotland and the north of England partnering with fuel suppliers where appropriate and employing staff regionally for quick response. As HWEnergy continues to go we’re not quite sure where Bruno is going to find the time, but he has said he is really looking forward to acting as an advocate for the Chamber and developing its profile across the region and we know he will do a great job.
