“I’m delighted to be joining at this very exciting time. I see the company as an integral part of the North East business community.

“The Mussel Club has grown so much over the last few years and I look forward to helping it flourish and grow further. I’m really excited in what the future holds.”

Director of operations at the North East BIC, David Howell, added: 
“It’s fantastic to welcome the Mussel Club to the BIC as they evolve and build on the growth already achieved, and having known Arthur for some time, I am confident he will be a great asset to the company. As well as holding their monthly networking events at the BIC, I believe many of the businesses located here will benefit from having them as a neighbour.”
