Black Asian Minority Ethnic Business Committee

The Chamber formed a committee to connect, support and represent Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic businesses.

Comprised of members from a range of businesses, the BAME Business Committee Chair is Nasreen Karim and Vice Chair is Karl Oxford.

Meet the BAME Business Committee.

Nasreen Karim (Chair)

Platinum Partnership Solicitors

My interests and passion are all things business. I oversee multiple businesses alongside my law firm Platinum Partnership Solicitors. I have recently been appointed as a Director for West & North Yorkshire Chamber. I think it is key that influential BAME businesses act as go between in order to bridge the gap between the chamber and organisations that have been traditionally hard to reach.

Karl Oxford (Vice Chair)

African and Caribbean Business Ventures

My business is called African and Caribbean Business Ventures.

I am involved in the BAME committee because I think I can help the committee (and the Chamber) to increase the participation of BAME businesses within the wider business structures and services.

Saleem Kader

Bombay Stores Group

I have run various brands from the city of Bradford for over 50 years and would like to promote, and enable equal opportunities, with members of the BAME community within the Chamber and other decision making organisations within the city and region.

Yaseen Mohammed

Y Property Ltd

I have over 20 years’ experience in the property industry and run my own development consultancy.

I’m passionate about Bradford and keen to connect my significant network from the BAME business community to the chamber and its various services. I’m  confident that the BAME committee can act as the ideal conduit to make this happen!

Adnan Malik

Premier Housing

I’m the director of Premier Housing, we specialise in commercial & residential property development & management.

I’m involved with the BAME committee as I believe it is a vital vehicle to ensure & help with the full inclusion & representation of bame businesses & to help give them a voice where necessary.

Asma Iqbal

Chadwick Lawrence LLP

As a Yorkshire business and a member of the BAME community I am passionate about seeing BAME businesses thrive in these difficult times – a voice that integrates and collaborates businesses to help the economy prosper in the Yorkshire region is what inspired me to become a part of the BAME business committee.Luqman Rashid

Hillcrest Wealth Management

Luqman Rashid

Director at Hillcrest Wealth Management, part of St. James’s Place Partnership a FTSE 100 company.
I want to shorten the disconnect with the Chamber and the BAME business community. Encouraging members to join and being an advocate of the advantages, also bridging the gap of misunderstanding on both sides.
