It saddens me to announce that, Nancy-jo Manney - our esteemed CEO since 1998 - will be leaving us effective December 31, 2018. She and her husband are relocating to the Gulf Coast of Florida, in time for a warm winter. Nancy-jo has been the heart and soul of our Chamber for 20 years. She will be sorely missed but we wish her (and Dave) the very best in her new adventure.
So now the search for our new CEO is in full swing. The ideal candidate will be skilled in membership development; program development and implementation; and public policy advocacy.
Our next CEO will need to build stakeholder relationships, manage the Chamber's finances, have critical thinking skills, be able to communicate effectively and will be self-motivated.
Administrative organization is critical to this position.
In our search we're looking for someone who is familiar with the Greater Springfield area and ready to connect with Fairfax County staff.
Resumes with cover letter should be directed to our CEO Search Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Resumes with cover letter will be accepted until noon September 28, 2018.
Kathleen McDermott is the 2018 chair of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. In her non-volunteer time she is an attorney with Alliance Law Group.
