The Red Deer and District Chamber of Commerce have got their guy.

Effective July 4, Robin Bobocel will take over as CEO.

Bobocel brings a wealth of experience to the position, including time as Chief of Staff to the Minister of Innovation and Advanced Education, as well as positions with the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce and Concrete Alberta.

Raised in northern Alberta, Bobocel’s family has roots in the oil and gas and forestry sector, and he attended Queen’s University.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to lead the dynamic team at the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce as we all work towards creating a better environment for business, both in the city and in the surrounding region,” he commented.

“As an experienced advocate for business, I’m passionate about doing my part towards ensuring that our community thrives, and I believe that the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce is well-positioned to provide the leadership that Central Alberta businesses deserve.”

On behalf of the Chamber’s Board of Directors, President Bradley Williams added, “After an exhaustive search, we are confident that Robin has the right combination of education, experience, and skills to lead the Chamber forward.”

The Chamber announced Tim Creedon had left his role as CEO back in November. Rick More has been serving in an interim capacity ever since.
