Entrepreneur and successful advocate for British Asian business, Sharon Jandu has been appointed to the national Board of Directors of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), the UK’s biggest membership organisation for small businesses and the self-employed, from 7 March 2023.
Yorkshire-based Sharon, who runs her own business providing global services, LEK Global, has played a leading role in celebrating the contributions of British Asians, including entrepreneurs, professionals, influencers, and politicians. She now brings this experience to the highest level of FSB. Sharon is passionate about facilitating improved trade opportunities between the UK’s small businesses and the Indian sub-continent.
Sharon Jandu said, “I’m excited to have been appointed to the FSB Board. FSB has such a strong voice heard in governments at all levels and is committed to supporting the UK’s diverse small businesses community. Small businesses contribute a huge amount to the UK’s economy and there’s never been a more important time to play a role in shoring that up for the future.”
Martin McTague, national chair of FSB, said, “It’s fantastic to have Sharon on board, she is a real inspiration and her understanding of the vast contribution that British Asian small businesses make and the particular issues they face, will help FSB enormously in our mission to be representative of the whole of the UK’s small business community and supporting small businesses to achieve their ambitions during these particular difficult times.”
