Gordon leaves top Chamber post

Diane Gordon has left the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce, it was announced by the Chamber yesterday.

No explanation of the former executive director’s departure was given, with the statement saying only that she was no longer employed by the Chamber.

“Mrs Gordon, who energetically led the Chamber’s business functions for 11 years, was the public face of this organisation, and a highly visible member of the community, well known to those in business and the Bermuda Government,” said Chamber president Stephen Todd.

“The Chamber is beginning the search for a new executive director.”

Ms Gordon, executive vice-president of the Chamber, recently announced her designation from the Certified Chamber Executive (CCE) by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) only the second Chamber member outside the USA/Canada to receive the accolade.

In her role, Ms Gordon managed the Chamber’s business and personnel affairs and was involved in the promotion of Bermuda’s commercial and economic progress as well as promoting the cultural, recreational, and social issues which impact the Island.

A Bermudian, she was one of the principal spokespersons advocating the Chamber’s members’ policy positions to Government, international organisations, the media and the public, in addition to being represented on a number of advisory board, committees and task forces.

Ms Gordon and Mr Todd did not return calls from this newspaper by presstime.
