Flamborough Chamber of Commerce
After serving for 17 years as the executive director of the Stoney Creek Chamber of Commerce (SCCC), Dave Cage has decided to retire. He was honoured for his many years of service at a tribute dinner earlier this week in Winona. Executive Director Arend Kersten and his wife Dianne represented the Flamborough Chamber of Commerce (FCC) at the event. Dave has been Arend’s mentor since he assumed his FCC duties over 11 years ago. Dave’s retirement is especially noteworthy as a recent survey by the Chambers of Commerce Executives of Canada (CCEC) indicates that fewer than six percent of chambers of commerce/boards of trade senior executives have served in their current positions for a decade or longer. Before joining the SCCC, Dave was a senior executive with BMO.
Allan O’Dette, President and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) was the guest speaker and thanked Dave for his many contributions. Also present was Sheldon Leiba, the former CEO and President of the Mississauga Board of Trade who was recently appointed the OCC Vice President for Network and Membership Relations.... Read More »
