The interim CEO at the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce now has a permanent job.
The board announced Rick More as the CEO Tuesday. In a news release, the chamber highlighted More’s extensive leadership skills, community involvement and management experience.
“We are fortunate to have a dependable, long-term employee with deep local roots ready to serve and build on our strengths moving forward,” said chamber president John MacKenzie.
A passionate volunteer and advocate for mental health, More is co-founder of the Smiles Thru Lindsey foundation and is a director of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre.
