(BLOOMINGTON) - The board of directors for the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce announced today that Jeb Conrad has officially resigned from his position as President and CEO.

"Although I have enjoyed and grown as a member of the Chamber from the Board, staff and members of the organization, I feel it is time for me to pursue new opportunities that will meet my personal goals and leverage my experience and skills more effectively in the future," Conrad said in a statement to the Board.

"The Board wishes to thank Jeb for his four years of service as President and CEO," said Randy Lloyd, Chairman of the Chamber's board of directors. "We wish him the best of luck in his new endeavors."

Anne Bono has been named interim President and CEO. She will assume her new duties, in addition to those she is responsible for as Director of Advocacy and Public Policy, immediately. Besides leading the Chamber's advocacy efforts, she also serves as Executive Director of Hoosier Voices for I-69.

"I look forward to serving in this role as we search for a permanent replacement. We have a remarkable staff and we will continue to be the voice of business for our community, offer premier events, and advocate on behalf of our members," said Bono.

"We appreciate Anne's willingness to accept the additional responsibilities in this time of transition. She has proven herself to be an effective leader and is committed to both the Chamber and our community," said Lloyd.

The Board of Directors is forming a search committee for a new President and CEO. Jennie Vaughan, Chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College's Bloomington campus, and Cindy Kinnarney, Market President at First Financial Bank, will co-chair the committee. "Our Chamber has an excellent brand and we'll be looking for a strong leader to represent our diverse membership," said Vaughan.
