St Thomas  District Chamber of Commerce Seeks New CEO

Board of Directors announces plan for leadership transition

St. Thomas, ON, November 4, 2019 - Following the recent retirement of long-time CEO, Bob Hammersley, the St. Thomas & District Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has announced that the search to fill that role will begin immediately.

Beginning November 4th and ending November 22nd at 11:00 a.m., the Chamber will be accepting confidential 'Expressions of Interest' for the leadership position.

Board Chair Sean Dyke noted that "Bob (Hammersley) played a critical role in advancing the Chamber to where it is today. This is an opportunity to build on that strong foundation and to drive the Chamber towards a new level of service and program possibilities for its Members."

Robert Furneaux, Chamber Board Member & Managing Director of Gorman-Rupp Canada, has assumed the volunteer role as Interim CEO until the transition to new leadership is complete.

Furneaux has vast experience in leading organizations through change, and shared that "The Chamber's mission to remain the voice of business in this community is a key priority. This search for the right leader is paramount to ensure that the Chamber consistently meets the needs of its valued Members and exceeds their expectations."

To understand how to best serve its existing and future Membership, an independent and confidential Survey will launch concurrent with this search. The consolidated inputs from the Survey will also serve as guidance in both the selection process and the future direction of the Chamber.

Those who choose to participate in the Survey by November 20th will be eligible for a complimentary one-year Chamber membership. The winner of this draw will be announced by 4:00 p.m. on November 22, 2019.

Submittal details for an 'Expression of Interest' for the CEO role, and a direct link to the Survey are now available on the Chamber's website at www.stthomaschamber.on.ca .
