The Illawarra Business Chamber‘s new CEO Mike Leask was previously Director of Membership and Commercial Relations at the Australian Retailers Association. This role involved promoting membership services to retailers, marketing ARA resources to corporate partners, seeking affiliations from like-minded employer groups and liaising with government officials.
“Mike comes to the Illawarra Business Chamber with the valuable combination of previously working in a member-based organisation and, earlier in his career, running his own small business,” said President of the Illawarra Business Chamber Les Dion.
“This combination means Mike has a real understanding of the challenges facing our members and how to support them as they grow their business.”
