Chamber names new CEO

 

The board of the Prince George Chamber of Commerce has appointed Todd Corrigall as its new CEO.

The position became vacant in November Erika Ewacha stepped down after just four-and-a-half months on the job. Corrigall will assume the role of CEO effective January 8, 2018.

“I am excited to return to Prince George and join the Chamber team,” said Corrigall in a press release. “I look forward to connecting with our members, garnering a greater understanding and appreciation for their needs. I would like to thank the Chamber team and board of directors for their diligent work during the transitionary time.”

Corrigall worked for about six months as the City of Prince George’s director of communications under the administration of Shari Green. Corrigall left the city in January, 2015, around the same time as the Lyn Hall administration terminated the employment of then city manager Beth James. Prior to joining the city in 2014, Corrigall spent three years as a senior communications officer for the CBC in Yellowknife.

After leaving the city, Corrigall went on to be the general manager of communications and marketing for the City of Lloydminster and then director of strategy and partnerships. In Lloydminster Corrigall was at the centre of a story that garnered national headlines when the city created its own news website to counteract stories in the local media.

Corrigall has a background in communications, policy development and government relations.

“I am confident that Todd will excel in the role and that while the selection process was onerous, I feel the board has been able to add value to the membership by extending the offer,” said Corey Naphtali, President of the Chamber of Commerce.

Corrigal started in the new position today.
