Greater Binghamton Chamber President To Resign In JunePosted: Updated:
After three years, Greater Binghamton Chamber President Jennifer Conway will be resigning at the end of June for a new position outside upstate New York.
Chamber Board Chairman Peter Newman announced the news to members Tuesday night at its annual dinner.
“Jennifer was recently recruited by a national search firm for a job out west. This will be a great new opportunity for her and her family. We thank Jennifer for the positive impact she has had on our organization and the broader community," said Newman.
Conway's departure comes three years after Chamber leaders introduced her as their new leader in April 2016, selected to succeed former CEO Lou Santoni following a nationwide search of over 100 candidates.
“This is the hardest decision my family has ever had to make as this community has been so wonderful and supportive of me and my husband. I am incredibly thankful for my time in this position as President and CEO. I have been privileged to work alongside a phenomenal team that I am confident will continue with the same momentum that we have all built together. The Chamber Board of Directors have been instrumental in ensuring this chamber is on the right path and I am confident they will select the perfect person to take the Chamber to the next level," said Conway.
The chamber will provide details at a later date about who will serve in Conway's position in the transition and the search process for a new leader.
