A rise in young directors and female directors should enliven the local business landscape and hopefully help to promote growth in 2013
(PRWEB UK) 14 December 2012
The third quarter of the year has seen a significant rise in young directors in Barnsley, according to figures in the latest Duport Business Confidence Report.
Between July and September, 7% of director appointments were under 25 years old, compared with just 3% during the same period in 2011. The percentage of female director appointments in Barnsley also rose slightly, from 26% in Q3 2011 to 27% in Q3 2012.
However, the report also contains less positive news for the town, with company formations dropping by 8% when comparing Q3 2011 and Q3 2012.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:
“The drop in company formations in Barnsley reflects the difficult economic climate the UK as a whole is facing.”
“However, a rise in young directors and female directors should enliven the local business landscape and hopefully help to promote growth in 2013.”
