From councillor to chamber president

Ian McLean, a current councillor, has been given a new title as the new president and chief executive officer of the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce.

The Waterloo Region Record stated that McLean, who has been councillor since 2003, did not want to run for council this year and opted to instead apply for the 1,700-member chamber.

McLean, 42, feels that this role would be a good fit because of his background and volunteer experience. He starts his new position on Oct. 5.
