(GDN) — It’s the end of an era for Wayne County’s business community.
Kate Daniels, the President of the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce, will be stepping down from her position at the end of the week.
In her final interview as chamber president on Jeff Farrow’s Morning Show on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits FM 98.3 WGBR, Daniels said a bittersweet goodbye.
Daniels praised the entire Chamber of Commerce team and volunteers for their successes over the past nine years.
She also says the next president will have a “phenomenal opportunity” to lead the organization into the future.
Daniels says she has loved the opportunity to make connections with people, and helping others to build relationships in the Wayne County business community.
She says they have strived to ensure member businesses see a return on investment.
Since 2014, the chamber has maintained an over 90% retention rate with member businesses.
Daniels said, “it’s incredible what has happened,” as the chamber worked to provide relevant programming.
Daniels’ last day leading the chamber will be this Friday, February 18.
The Wayne County Chamber of Commerce’s Presidential Search committee is currently accepting resumes for the position of President / Executive Director.
