Hive chair Khalid Saifullah steps down

Khalid Saifullah is to step as chair of the Hive business group after more than five years in the role.

He was inspirational in establishing the group in 2012 and has been chair since its launch.

Vice chair Ian Brown will assume the role of interim chair while Khalid’s business, Star Tissue, will continue to be a core Hive Ambassador.

Hive is a group of organisations running networking events, awards and steering groups with the aim of making Blackburn and Darwen a world-class town, building on its manufacturing heritage, young and ethnically diverse workforce and creative and innovative business community.

The Hive Steering Group said: “Khalid’s vision for Hive and business in Blackburn with Darwen was instrumental in the formation of the strong position we find ourselves in today with membership standing at nearly 400 local organisations.

“He has guided Hive from a small group of business leaders in 2012 with a common goal through to it’s current guise with a wide range of initiatives ranging from Hive Business School to the Manufacturing Excellence Group and networking events to the Hive Awards.”
