WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – The Wausau Chamber of Commerce says they'll be looking for a new leader after Roger Luce resigned earlier this month.
The news today comes 11 days after Luce turned in his letter of resignation to the board. President Scott Pagenkopf says the board wanted that extra time to take a look at their finances, standings and situation before moving forward in new direction. “We just really wanted to be sure of where we were right now before starting the search process.”
Pagenkopf says the board will be naming an interim director of the Chamber within the next few weeks as they put together a search committee. He said he's not sure yet if the board will look outside of Wausau for a new leader. “That's something we need to take a look at before we make a decision.”
Luce served as the executive director of the Chamber and as the head of MCDevco for 11 years. Pagenkopf says the board wishes him the best in his future endeavors.
