In a release from the chamber, Hansen is described as someone with “extensive” experience in senior administrative roles who is organized and “understands the role that the chamber plays in the development of business and the community.” 

The chamber board was elected in late 2013, but the search was still on for an Executive Director after the late Annette Oak’s interim replacement didn’t work out. 

An Executive Assistant has also been found in Shelley L’Heureux. L’Heureux is new to the area, but has experience as the an office assistant and Tourism Supervisor with the Mackenzie Chamber of Commerce.
