Jack Stopforth was awarded a Fellowship for his outstanding contribution to the regeneration of Liverpool
Jack joined the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce as Chief Executive in 2005, after managing Cumbria Inward Investment Agency for eight years. Born in Liverpool, he spent his early career as a development economist in London. He returned to work in Merseyside first as Chief Economic Adviser to Merseyside County Council and latterly as owner manager of two public affairs, public relations and advertising companies. Jack believes that the Chamber should not just represent business but, where appropriate, set the policy agenda in discussion with employers, key public agencies and government. His work ethos has helped improve Liverpool's physical infrastructure and stimulate its economy.
Jack commented on the Fellowship:
"Receiving this Fellowship is a great honour as LJMU aligns with my own business ethos in setting a wider agenda for its work and purpose. The University has therefore created a Higher Education experience based on what employers want and this gives students a chance to stand out in the knowledge economy."
Speaking about Jack’s conferment, Vice-Chancellor, Professor Michael Brown said:
"Jack is a great example of an individual who looks at the bigger picture, resulting in many benefits and great improvement and stimulation for the city and its economy. We are delighted to welcome him as an Honorary Fellow."
