2014 Australian Export Hero, ACT Australian of the Year, successful entrepreneur and philanthropist, Mr. Glenn Keys, was elected Chair of Canberra Business Chamber at a Board meeting held on 19 February 2015.
The election of Mr. Keys followed the stepping down of Mr. Tony Henshaw, who has been interim Executive Chair since mid-2014.
Mr. Keys thanked his predecessor saying “Tony Henshaw has played a pivotal role in overseeing the successful coming together of two well-known and respected business organisations - Canberra Business Council and the ACT and Region Chamber of Commerce and Industry - to form a single strong voice for business in Canberra and the region - Canberra Business Chamber”.
Canberra offers a range of positive opportunities for businesses to establish and grow - such as a well-connected business community, connectivity to major capital cities, a well-educated population, a great digital network providing the opportunity to develop really innovative solutions that can be exported anywhere and a range of supportive government programs.
“I am honoured to have been asked to lead this new organisation into the future.”, Mr. Keys said.
