For Immediate Release – February 24, 2022
PERTH, ON – The Perth & District Chamber of Commerce is very pleased to welcome Gail Logan to the role of Executive Director for the organization.
“Gail comes to us with a wealth of experience and a passion for supporting local businesses and communities,” said Chamber President, Toby James.
Logan has spent many years working in various leadership positions within chambers of commerce and business development organizations. She managed the Ottawa Board of Trade/Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Kingston and Sault Ste. Marie Chambers of Commerce.
“Her expertise and commitment to the industry are truly unparalleled. Gail has a proven track record of successfully implementing programs and initiatives that drive economic growth and support local businesses,” added Toby James.
Gail’s most recent position was more than two years spent as Executive Director for the Carleton Place & District Youth Centre. During her tenure, the youth centre successfully navigated the impacts of Covid-19, saw growth in the number of participants visiting the centre, obtained new grants and other funding that resulted in the installation of a new commercial kitchen and healthy surpluses for 2021 and 2022.
“I’m very excited to be back managing a chamber. I’ve missed the energy, enthusiasm, determination and drive of entrepreneurs. I am committed to working to help expand the local business community, through strong economic development, marketing and promotion and reducing the burden of red tape,” said Logan.
The Chamber’s Annual General meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Best Western Plus Parkside Inn & Spa. There is no charge to attend the AGM, but pre-registration is required. Visit the Chamber’s website at: www.perthchamber.ca
