THE Henley Business Partnership has appointed three new directors.
They are Paul Westgarth, who owns and runs a senior care service, Niki Schäfer, an interior designer, and Gillian Nahum, who owns Boatique in Hart Street.

They will join partnership chairman Keith Douglas who has taken over from Julie Perigo, who is going to work abroad.
Guy Outram, a consultant, will remain a director and Robin Pincott will continue as the accountant.
Mr Westgarth has been a member of the partnership for two years and set up the health, wealth and wellbeing group.
Mrs Schäfer runs her own interior design business and is an associate member of the British Institute of Interior Design and the Professional Speakers Association.
She heads the partnership’s house and garden group.
Mrs Nahum has more than 20 years’ experience in the boating industry and runs Henley Sales and Charter, which brokers boats to enthusiasts throughout Europe.
Mr Douglas, who owns County Douglas Law, which specialises in wills, said: “We are all excited by the challenge ahead of us and committed to providing a busy schedule of events to interest the business community and support local charities and groups.
“We appeal to local business people to take a fresh look at us. We would be delighted to have an informal chat with anyone to explain more on an individual basis.”
Meanwhile, the partnership is arranging a series of free presentations on the challenges of later life.
Mr Westgarth will talk about dementia at Leander Club on February 27. Guests should arrive at 5.30pm for a 6pm start.
