Chamber Welcomes new Executive Director

Dear Members

The Board of Directors take pleasure in introducing Brenda Wilson as the new Executive Director .

Brenda  has had a career that spanned many business sectors including retail, manufacturing, wholesale, and direct selling. Within these channels her team leadership skills were utilized in brand management, marketing (both traditional and social media), sales, product development, operations, and customer relationship management.

With an extensive background in providing people focused strategic direction she delivered award winning results in sales, marketing campaigns  and product launches for brands such as Birks, Avon Canada, Laura Canada, Rubbermaid, and Zellers. Together with these companies  funds were raised for Kids Help Phone, Canadian Cancer Society, Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade and United Way.

Brenda loves to travel and has been to over 28 countries on five continents for work and pleasure. She is an avid reader (over 300 books last year!) and has taken that love of words and stories to the Hamilton Literacy Council as an adult tutor.

Brenda grew up in Stoney Creek and attended McMaster University. She is thrilled to be living once again in Stoney Creek and to be able to use her knowledge and experience to partner with, strengthen and advocate for the local business community.

We are confident that Brenda’s many talents and wide-ranging experience will help the Stoney Creek Chamber of Commerce  to continue to serve the membership by building meaningful connections and fostering innovation and learning.

Please join me in wishing a heartfelt welcome to Brenda as she takes up her new role with us.

Ralph Vitello

Board President
