Interim CEO - Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce


Kim Smythe
The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce announced the appointment of an interim Chief Executive Officer today. Odai Sirri, Chamber Chair said, “We’re extremely proud to have retained the services of Kim Smythe as acting CEO to help us through our transition. This will ensure continued quality in the delivery of services to our members and security for our staff and community partners.”

Mr. Smythe stated, “The Chamber was able to offer some flexibility in their time demands that allows me to continue serving my company’s existing clients over the next few months while devoting a lot of attention to the Chamber’s needs. I’m flattered the board recruited me and is entrusting their expectations with me.” Smythe’s firm, WestCoast Communications & Events, provides strategic planning, event management, marketing communications and public relations services to a variety of BC clients. He has also been involved in an advisory capacity on several Chamber committees and as a past board member.

Sirri continued, “We have great confidence in Kim leading us forward without the Chamber skipping a beat. This is extremely important given the number and variety of economic development projects on the community’s horizon, the opportunities emerging for local businesses and the challenges that face us all.”

The Chamber will continue accepting resumes in order to fill the CEO position on a permanent basis. More information is available on their website.
