David Banks - Chair

I joined Marks & Spencer almost 30 years ago as a trainee and have spent time working abroad, in regional, divisional and various Head Office roles with the majority of time being spent in stores. I joined the team in Llandudno in September 2016 and I’m fortunate enough to be living close by in Penrhyn Bay. Myself, my wife and dog (Reuben) love Llandudno, County Conwy and North Wales and were made to feel very welcome from the start. I want Llandudno to continue to prosper and by Llandudno I mean the whole town and surrounding area. I firmly believe that for Llandudno to be successful it is far more than which big retailers are in the town, it’s about the diversity of offer and the independents as that’s what helps to make Llandudno different from other towns. As Chair of the Chamber of Trade I see a key part of my role as supporting all members of the Chamber to ensure that together we can continue to make Llandudno a great place to visit, shop and come back again!
