Karin Smyth met staff on a visit to the HQ of Computershare UK, based at The Pavilions, Bridgwater Road, Bedminster Down.
The company employs over 1,500 people, with some 580 living in Karin Smyth’s Bristol South constituency.
The visit included a meeting with CEO Naz Sarkar, which gave an opportunity to discuss the needs of Computershare staff and the wider local community, including transport, air quality and education.
Karin Smyth MP said: “Computershare plays a valuable role in south Bristol, employing hundreds of people living locally. It was interesting at the meeting to hear about the company’s wider work supporting local schools and sustainable transport provision.
“I look forward to continuing to engage with Computershare and other local businesses in the future.”
Naz Sarkar said: “It was great to see Karin again in her new capacity as our MP and discuss how we can work in the local community. As a growing business we play an active role in the south of Bristol and beyond, whether through our staff member’s lunchtime visits to schools to help with reading, or through working with transport providers to lower air pollution and reduce congestion.
“We’re looking forward to working with Karin as she represents our community in Westminster.”
