Rotherham businessman Mike Smith has been appointed right hand-man to the Queen's Lord Lieutenant in South Yorkshire. Mike, of Wickersley, takes over as Lieutenancy Officer from David Fisher, who has been in the role for 22 years. His new role will be to support David Moody who, as Lord Lieutenant, helps promote the region, manage royal visits and co-ordinate royal awards. Previously president of Rotherham Chamber of Commerce and vice-chairman of the Training and Enterprise Council, Mike now runs a consultancy business specialising in transport, management and organisational development. He has been elected a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and holds many other positions, including being a director of the Magna centre, vice-chairman of the Rotherham Town Team, chairman of the Renaissance PR group and chairman of the Thrybergh Education Action Zone.
