After 17 years, the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce (GOCC) will now be looking for a new CEO.

Bob Malcolmson, who joined the GOCC in 1998, said it is now time to step aside and spend more time with his family.

“I extend a sincere thank you to my staff and the over one thousand directors and volunteers I have had the pleasure of working with for close to two decades,” Malcolmson said in a press release.

“Their generous support and dedication to the Chamber movement made this job the best leadership role in all of Durham Region.”

According to GOCC President Jeff Hayes, the search for a replacement is currently underway and he hopes to announce a successor in early 2016.

Malcolmson says he will stay on until a replacement is found.
