Search for new Chamber CEO kicks off
Tauranga Chamber of Commerce today announced that local recruitment specialist Personnel Resources had been appointed to assist in finding a new Chamber CEO.
Chamber Chairman Paul Bowker said, “Personnel Resources Ltd headed up by Ian Chitty will be spearheading the search for a new CEO to replace Max Mason who is departing after five and a half years. The Chamber has had a long association with Ian and his team, and partner sponsor KPMG, and the process will start immediately.”
Ian Chitty said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to assist in recruiting a new CEO for the Chamber given the importance of the role in the local business community. We have been Chamber members and mentors for 18 years, and have a very good sense of the organisation and the CEO role.”
“We already have a list of possible applicants, and will also be advertising in local and national media starting next week, and expect a good number of responses. In many ways this is a unique role given the very broad range of skills and experience desirable, but it’s also about attitude and personality. Most importantly it’s about finding someone who is passionate about making a difference in Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty.”
