George Malek, Executive Vice President of the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce to Retire in March

George Malek, Executive Vice President of the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce has announced his retirement from the Chamber effective March 2016. We at CVRPC would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for George and his three decades of service to the region. Below is a note from George.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce for more than three decades. Nothing could have been more rewarding than helping area business succeed and prosper while growing employment opportunities for your children and mine.

However, all good things come to an end, and I have asked the Chamber Board of Directors to begin the search for my successor as soon as possible. I want to be able to assist in the transition, to be available as a resource for your new President, and to still have more time for my family and leisure by next spring. My target is to step down from full time employment in March.

The Chamber has terrific volunteer leaders on the Board of Directors and very talented staff. It is well positioned to embark on a new era of economic influence and community leadership in the years ahead. However, taking full advantage of these opportunities will require more energy and a longer commitment than I am prepared to make.

I urge you to give the Board your full support as this change unfolds and to find the time to share your knowledge, insights and talents with this great organization in the months and years ahead.

Please accept my sincerest thanks for all you have already done. You have been a wonderful partner in the success of the Chamber and the Central Vermont community.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, there is much to be done between now and then.

Most sincerely,
