William Durning has decided to move on as the chief executive of the Chamber after four years in the job.
William joined the Chamber in October 2014 following the board’s decision to focus on a path of revitalisation and change. He will leave the Chamber once a new chief executive has been appointed. Recruitment is underway and is expected to be completed over the coming months.
Waikato Chamber of Commerce chairman Terry Wilson said: “When we appointed William we agreed on a two to three-year tenure and we are pleased that we have been able to hold him for a little bit longer. William leaves the Chamber in great shape following a strong period of refocusing and connecting with our business community. William’s passion, professionalism and dedication continues as he works with us in transitioning in a new chief executive. “
William said it had been a privilege and a pleasure to lead the Chamber’s transformation and it now has a strong platform ready for the next significant stage of growth.
“I particularly want to acknowledge the efforts of my dynamic team, the growth that the Chamber has seen is a direct result of their engagement and focus on the people that make up our business community.”
