Peter Bainbridge (pictured) who was most recently a technology risk consultant with global business services company, KPMG, strengthens Chamber International’s team of export advisers to help Britain expand its global trade after leaving the EU.

Peter Bainbridge’s 15-year diplomatic career included roles such as commercial counsellor at the British Embassy in Bogota; head of the South America regional climate change network at the British Embassy in Brasilia; and deputy director for the Western Balkans. His career started as an export adviser at what is now the Department for International Trade.

He says: “The UK is at the start of an export revival that will see trade routes extend and deepen with the fastest-growing economies in the world. This is a very exciting time to join Chamber International and I’m looking forward to using my overseas business and government networks and market experience to help companies access these high-growth trading countries.”
