The Chamber would like to announce that Carolyn Davies is the new president at the Chamber of Commerce.
Carolyn Davies has moved up from her role as the ACOC’s first vice president to the presidency after former President Tim Ternosky vacated the post after he had to move away due to work related reasons. Her ascension to the president’s job was approved by the ACOC at the board meeting Wednesday July 6.
“I’m really excited,” said Davies, a former town councillor and co-owner of the Bondy House Bed & Breakfast. “I think we can be more dynamic.”
Davies added she is “very honoured to have been moved into this position” and praised her predecessor.
“Certainly we will miss Tim as he was a good leader,” she said.
The ACOC has moved progressively to support businesses in Amherstburg for many years, the new president said, adding that it has made a move to support its downtown businesses as many towns have challenges in ensuring their downtown cores remain vibrant.
“The Chamber has strategically created events to bring activity to the downtown core,” said Davies, citing the July 22-23 Mardi Gras as an example.
