The Cranbrook and District Chamber of Commerce announced today that it has hired David D. Hull to fill the newly-created position of Executive Director.

Mr. Hull is an experienced management executive specializing in business, Chambers of Commerce, associations and industry sectoral organizations.

He has a strong record of accomplishments and has led improvement and positive change in a diverse range of associations, organizations and for profit businesses around British Columbia.

“We are very pleased to have found someone of David’s caliber, skills and experience to lead the Chamber into the future,” said Dave Butler, Chamber President. “He has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and clearly understands the needs of business and the role that a local Chamber can and should play in meeting those needs.”

Mr. Hull’s experience includes 12 years in management consulting, six years as the Executive Director of the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, real estate sales, and 14 years in management and operations for a large Canadian corporation specializing in the wholesale distribution and sales of industry supplies and equipment.

“We’re looking forward to David starting with us on December 8, 2014,” said Butler. “For the rest of that month, he’ll work with the Board and Chamber Manager Karin Penner to learn about the Chamber, Cranbrook and the local business community. We’ll formally introduce him to Chamber members at our December luncheon. This is a very exciting time for the Cranbrook Chamber.”
