The Pontiac Chamber of Commerce has found its new director general, Jessica Forgues. She has nearly 10 years of experience in the Pontiac, including holding a position as constituency assistant in the House of Commons, under former MP William Amos.

In a press release, the Chamber of Commerce indicated that Jessica Forgues will be able to lead the organization and its members to new levels of excellence. The Chamber has said that it wants to offer its members new training, benefits and events in the near future.

“As President, I welcome Jessica to our team in promoting and enhancing the interests of Pontiac businesses. We have all been through difficult years and I am sure that Jessica will organize activities and information sessions to re-engage our members after two years of isolation so that we as entrepreneurs can network with our peers and the public.” said Pontiac Chamber of Commerce President Todd Hoffman.

Note that the MRC Pontiac had announced a grant of $70,000 to the Pontiac Chamber of Commerce to help them hire a Director General.
