Gwinnett Chamber launching ‘region-wide’ search for new leader

The Gwinnett Chamber, one of the largest suburban chambers of commerce in the country, is looking for a new leader. 

Current Chamber president and CEO Dan Kaufman is retiring effective June 30. The Chamber announced last week what it’s calling a “region-wide search” for his replacement. 

A search committee comprised of 15 community business leaders has been formed to lead the effort.

“The committee is extremely excited at the tremendous opportunity to secure a best fit candidate with regional experience, strong business acumen, stellar communication and interpersonal skills, impeccable integrity and the ability to manage diverse relationships,” committee chair Bill Russell said in a news release.

With a budget of more than $5 million and a staff of 36 employees, the Gwinnett Chamber serves more than 2,000 local businesses.
