Chamber of Commerce CEO Announces Retirement

Bob Canter
Bob Canter, Emeryville Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, announced at the City's Economic Development Committee today he will be retiring from his position at the Chamber at the end January to seek "a new path" in his life.  In an accompanying  press release, the Chamber noted Mr Canter has been at the helm there for 13 1/2 years but, "the time to retire comes for everyone."
Mr Canter was appointed as the first-ever President and CEO of the Chamber in 2001 and he ushered in a period of growth for the 501(c)(6) non-profit corporation during his tenure.
Mr Canter told the Tattler, "The search for my replacement hasn't begun" but he said the Board of Directors will conduct a search.

Mr Canter noted he is approaching 64 years old and it is in the best interests of Chamber of Commerce and himself and his family for him to step down at this time.
Long a resident of Martinez California, Bob will relocate to northern Florida with his wife upon retirement.
