Chamber announces new executive director

Chris Fudge to take the lead with the Peninsula Chamber

After the position being vacant for close to five months, the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce announced last week they appointed a new candidate to the position of Executive Director.

On Jan. 4, the Chamber announced that Chris Fudge would be taking on the position vacated by Doug Taylor whose contract was terminated by the Chamber on Aug. 24.

According to a press release, Fudge served as Senior Manager of Member and Visitor Services for Tourism Whistler as well as spent three years with the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

“It was important for us to find an engaging executive director who understood our diverse region on the Peninsula, the unique needs of our membership, and the proven experience to lead our Chamber for many years ahead,” said Mark deMedeiros, President of the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce board of directors.

Born in Ottawa, Fudge spent the last 16 years in B.C. and recently relocated to Vancouver Island from Squamish.

He is married with two children and is an avid downhill skier and mountain biker.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to join the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and look forward to providing our members with new and innovative resources to successfully navigate the current business environment,” Fudge said.

“Members can expect to see a highly functioning organization working on their behalf, and I invite anyone looking for new opportunities for their business to join us.”
