New Chair appointed to the Small Business Charter Management Board

The Small Business Charter (SBC) Management Board is delighted to announce the appointment of Stuart Miller, entrepreneur and small business evangelist, as its new Chair.

Stuart has a wealth of experience and is co-founder and CEO of ByBox, the international software and supply chain management company. Stuart led ByBox from a Silicon Valley start-up in January 2000 to a turnover of $120 million today. Stuart is also on the Advisory Board of Loughborough University Business School, an Industry Advisor (entrepreneurship) at the Saϊd Business School, Entrepreneur in Residence at the Glendonbrook Centre and author of ‘The 7 Conundrums of an Entrepreneur’.

Stuart has been involved with the SBC since its inception and will lead the Management Board and the team at the Chartered Association of Business Schools, in driving forward the work of the Small Business Charter in recognising and supporting the role business schools play in supporting small businesses, local economies and student entrepreneurship.

Anne Kiem, Chief Executive of the Chartered ABS said, “We are excited about working with Stuart to take the Small Business Charter to the next level. His knowledge and experience is matched by his enthusiasm and energy. It helps enormously that Stuart has been involved from the beginning and can bring the SME perspective so vividly to life.”

Stuart Miller said, “The benefits to the UK economy of a vibrant and successful SME community are enormous. Business schools have so much to offer SMEs that would dramatically increase their chances of success and propel their growth. The Small Business Charter exists to galvanise SMEs with business schools to drive this growth. As a passionate believer in entrepreneurship, I am hugely proud to serve as Chair of the Small Business Charter.”
