People and businesses who work with the Chamber will already know Jill as she has been with the agency in a different role until the board voted at their April meeting to promote her to this new position.
“Jill was the natural candidate to take on the role and title as she was already doing all of the duties of an Executive Director,” said Karen Debergh, Board Chair of the Wallaceburg and District Chamber of Commerce. “She had taken on a commanding leadership role with us and it was time that we recognized her hard work and dedication by giving her the credit, and title, that she has earned.”
“It is such an honour to have been selected to receive this promotion and I must thank everyone on the board, my colleagues, and our volunteers,” said Misselbrook. “It is a great honour to be involved in the community through the Wallaceburg & District Chamber of Commerce. I am working hard every day to help all of the Chamber members and businesses.”
Misselbrook has over 25 years of newspaper, radio advertising, and marketing experience in the Chatham-Kent area. In addition, she and her husband have been operating a small business called CJ Window Tinting in Dresden for the past 14 years. Misselbrook also has an extensive history volunteering for several non -profit organizations such as Dresden Minor Hockey Moms, The Canadian Cancer Society, Relay for Life, and the Dresden Community Food Bank.
“I have been working with Jill for several months now and she has been an absolute delight to collaborate with. She has been actively engaged in activities around the community and I continue to run into her at events, meetings, and businesses,” said Spencer Pray, Economic Development Officer with Chatham-Kent Economic Development. “I look forward to continuing to build a strong partnership between Economic Development and the Chamber, and I know Jill will be instrumental in helping to further forge that connection.”
“I take pride in giving back to Wallaceburg and the surrounding area any way I can. As the new Executive Director, I can now direct my skills towards providing even greater services for our members,” said Misselbrook. “If there is anything the community would like to see happen or changed, please don’t hesitate to give me a call at 519-627-1443.”
