THE Geelong Chamber of Commerce has elected three new directors and appointed one new director to its board.

The vote took place at the 131st annual general meeting of the chamber, held yesterday (Tuesday, November 23).

Renee Jovic (Zenith Business Advisory), Mark Neeld (Geelong United) and Karl Morris (Goop Digital) were elected as the new directors, and the board also welcomed Cathryn Walley (LBW) as an appointed director.

Chamber chief executive officer Ben Flynn said the AGM was a great success, and thanked everyone who attended and participated in the vote.

“We had an amazing 16 nominees and while it’s a shame we could only have three, the board feels tremendously pleased with the result.

“Our new directors will bring a range of ideas, enthusiasm and energy to our Board as we navigate a changing space and continue to deliver more and more value to our members.

“The board would like to thank outgoing directors Nick Klein (LBW), Dineli Mather (Deakin) and Ali Erskine (Harwood Andrews) for their significant contribution to the chamber over their terms and we wish them well in the future.

“The board would also like to thank Ash Wall from Mast Lawyers who acted as our independent adjudicator of the vote.

“It’s a great time to be part of the Chamber and we are working hard to finish off the year strongly, rebuild confidence and support our members to embrace a big 2022.”
