The Penticton and Wine Country Chamber selected Cary Schneiderat as their president at their Thursday board meeting.
“I am excited to be back with the chamber board and enjoy the honour of serving the board and our members. I look forward to working with a skilled and engaged board and our terrific staff in what will be a productive year,” Schneiderat said.
Schneiderat is the owner of the Pearce Schneiderat law firm, where he works out of the Penticton office. He has previously served on the chamber’s board of directors.
In addition, the board selected Don Brown, of Brown Benefits, to take the position of vice-president. Jonathan McGraw, from BDO Canada LLP, will take on the role of treasurer. All three will serve in their positions through 2018 and into 2019.
Immediate past-president Neil Wyper congratulated the new executive, “Cary, Don and Jonathan have been enthusiastic supporters for a long time, and I’m glad they have taken on these roles to lead the chamber this year. With their experience and talents, we’re going to have a great year.”
