Mr Greg Johnson, Toowoomba Chamber CEO, has announced his resignation from the position, effective from Friday 4th July, 2014.
He said “I certainly agree that it is a long lead time however, there are a number of important Chamber projects I wish to complete before I leave.”
“The past two and one-half years has seen the Chamber grow considerably in terms of reputation, membership, activities and financial worth” he said. “It has been satisfying for me personally to contribute to that important part in the Chamberâ€™s history.”
Mr Johnson continued “Along the way I have met with thousands of mainly small business managers and staff and I hope that I have contributed in some small way to the success of their businesses. I thank members and friends for their wonderful support over that period and pay tribute to my close colleagues and friends Tracey Kessels and Kristina Blue.”
He also thanked the Chamber of Commerce Board for giving him theÂ opportunity to serve business and industry in the Toowoomba Regional Council area. “To leave as the organisationâ€™s longest serving CEO in its 115 year history is indeed an honour” Mr Johnson said.
Greg intends to remain in Toowoomba with his family, and over the coming months will be considering further professional opportunities after he leaves the Chamber.
