Cambridge chamber chief executive steps down


After nearly four years with the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, chief executive officer Tania Witheford is stepping down.

Tania said it has been an absolute privilege to work with the Cambridge business community and the wider Chamber network.

“It is the right time for fresh eyes and new thinking to work with the Executive, our strategic partners and members to take the Chamber to the next level,” she said. “As Cambridge continues to grow and develop at an immense rate, we cannot sit on our laurels – we must continue to plan and grow with it.”

Cambridge Chamber of Commerce president Phil MacKay said Tania is leaving the chamber in a strong position.

“We have seen significant membership growth and retained and grown our strategic partners over this period. We continue to deliver a diverse and inclusive programme of events and actively engage and advocate on behalf of Cambridge business on a range of issues.

“We are delighted for Tania who has accepted the role as executive director with Community and Enterprise Leadership Foundation (CELF).”

Tania said this is an opportunity for her to further contribute by strengthening the leadership capability of businesses and within our communities.

The Chamber will commence the search for its next CEO immediately.
