Leaders International and the BC Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce that Fiona Famulak has been selected as the organization’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective March 1, 2021.
Famulak brings to the role more than three decades of international experience working in both private and not-for-profit sectors.
“I have enormous respect for the BC Chamber of Commerce and am honoured and excited to lead the organization at such a pivotal point in its history,” said Famulak. “The pandemic has reminded us of the importance of community, the power of collaboration and the need for courage to pursue new approaches to business,” she continued. “Our work ahead is to determine how to best serve the network of Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade, and the 36,000 businesses they represent, so that they not only navigate through the pandemic but are positioned to compete and thrive beyond it.”
As former president of the Vancouver Regional Construction Association, and CEO of the Whistler Chamber of Commerce, being of service to others and listening and responding to the needs of the community is at the core of what Fiona does. Her natural passion for connecting with people and building community around meaningful conversations, will help catalyze positive change for businesses across British Columbia as they navigate through and beyond the current challenging times.
