After more than seven years serving the community of Denmark as the Chamber of Commerce chief executive, Liz Jack has announced her resignation from the role at the end of the year.

Ms Jack said she would not be leaving the town and would make sure to still play a part in promoting local businesses in the region.

“I spent seven years working in the chamber and it’s time for me to transform and do something different,” she said.

“It was a very difficult decision for me to make and there were days where I wasn’t sure if I made the right decision, because there is still a lot of work to be done.

“We have engaged with the community and we built the chamber up, so that it has a regional voice and a regional presence.

“But it’s time for me to leave the space and have somebody else come in and build the chamber even more.”

Ms Jack said one of the proudest moments of her tenure as chief executive was the opportunity to hold the local hero event in town.

“That celebration of the local heroes was a very special moment just to honour small business and the work that they do to keep the community together,” she said.

Ms Jack said she would leave the role in December.

She was confident the chamber would find her replacement soon.
