Harrison Humphries of law firm Clifford Gouldson was elected unopposed as the Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce President at the Annual General Meeting recently.
Harrison has been serving as Vice President for a number of years and will now take over the reins from Joy Mingay who has done a tremendous job in the role.
Harrison said, “It’s a great honour to be able to take on this position as we continue to grow and enhance the benefits provided to Chamber members.”
“The Chamber Presidency places me in a unique position to truly understand the issues facing business owners. This will also add to the depth of advice that I’m able to offer my clients at Clifford Gouldson.”
“I’ve enjoyed working with Joy over the last few years and she’s taught me a lot about what success means for a member-driven organisation.”
“They are big shoes to fill but I’m confident that with the support of my Vice Presidents, Board Members and Clifford Gouldson, the Chamber will go from strength to strength with a great range of events and offers to members in 2020,” he said.
Clifford Gouldson Director Amanda Tolson said, “On behalf of the whole team here at the firm. I would like to offer my congratulations to Harrison on his election to this role.”
“Harrison impresses everyone he meets with his calm, confident manner. His engaging presence whether when addressing a room full of people or directing the flow of an event, is greatly admired.”
“We might have to check the record books but we believe Harrison may also be the youngest person to hold the position of Chamber President.”
“Which makes this achievement even more impressive,” she said.
Conscious of the demands that will be placed on Harrison’s time during the coming 12 months, a Clifford Gouldson spokesperson says steps are being taken to ensure he can continue to serve the needs of his clients and fulfill the role of Chamber President.
Additional administrative support will be provided to Harrison to help manage his calendar within the growing litigation practice which is also recruiting.
