"As the chamber embarks on a transition process due to my impending departure, these changes will help ensure continuity of leadership and accountability among the staff in the daily operations of the organization," Page said in a release. "Part of the peace of mind I have in stepping away from the role of president and CEO is knowing what an incredibly talented and dedicated group of professionals we have in place at the chamber."

The following appointments were made:
