More info Group 28 There have been some significant appointments made in Wales in recent weeks as we enter the new year. In our last jobs round-up of 2022, we take a look at some of those who have taken on new roles in time for 2023. CBI Wales The new chair of CBI Wales Lance Burn Employers body CBI Wales has appointed the chief executive of gift wrap, stationery and Christmas cracker manufacturer IG Design Group International as its new chair. Lance Burn, who heads one of the two divisions of Alternative Investment Market-listed IG Design Group, will take up the role from chair of international law firm Eversheds Sutherland, Kathryn Roberts, next month. He will also join the CBI chairs’ committee, the body responsible for setting and steering CBI policy. Ian Price, CBI Wales director, said: “As we look to recover from the slow-burn impact of the pandemic, new economic headwinds – from cost pressures to supply chain disruption – have created a local business environment that is amongst the most challenging firms in Wales have ever faced. “That’s why we’re delighted to welcome Lance Burn as the new chair of CBI Wales. With his extensive experience of consumer-facing businesses and international supply chains, Lance’s insight will be crucial as we look to tackle these challenges head-on.” Mr Burn said: “Regardless of the huge challenges facing the Welsh economy today, I’m absolutely convinced that Wales remains a fantastic place to live, work and grow a business. From the proposed tidal lagoon in Swansea to manufacturers working on the next generation of green products, Wales has an incredible opportunity to make sustainability a real point of difference as it competes on the world stage. “But we won’t be able to deliver that vision of a clean, green and prosperous economy for the future if we fail to address the challenges facing businesses and consumers right now. That means business and government – both at a UK and devolved level – working together to help the most vulnerable through the cost-of-living crisis and support brilliant firms that are suffering right now, but do so much to create jobs and opportunities in communities across Wales.” Glamorgan County Cricket Club Glamorgan Cricket’s new head of commercial, Edward Rice (Image: Chris Fairweather/Huw Evans Agency) Glamorgan County Cricket Club has appointed Edward Rice as new head of commercial, taking over from Huw Warren who left the role in July.

Chief executive Hugh Morris said: “We are delighted to welcome Ed to Glamorgan Cricket at such an exciting time for the Club. As we emerge from the COVID pandemic, Ed’s focus will be to maximise attendances for our high-profile matches and domestic competitions at Sophia Gardens and he has a great opportunity to grow the profile and interest in the game of cricket in Wales. Mr Rice said: "As a proud Welshman, I’m honoured and thrilled to be appointed to lead the commercial operations at Glamorgan Cricket. It is an exciting time for the Club on and off the field and I look forward to developing a strategy to grow the profile of cricket in Wales and attract new audiences, which will ultimately open up further commercial opportunities for the Club. I've enjoyed the challenge of working for two world-renowned sporting brands and will endeavour to take what I have learnt into cricket.” Chwarae Teg Lucy Reynolds is Chwarae Teg's new chief executive Gender equality charity Chwarae has appointed Lucy Reynolds as its new chief executive.
