Bolingbrook chamber CEO Mike Evans to resign, take same post in Naperville
Bolingbrook Area Chamber of Commerce president Mike Evans is resigning his post to take the same position at the Naperville Chamber of Commerce, the chamber announced Tuesday.
Evans will step down effective Dec. 7, and current staff and the chamber board chairman will oversee his duties during the interim of his absence and hiring process of a new CEO, according to a release. A search committee is already being formed and the process to find Evans' replacement will commence in December, the release states.
Evans leaves the Bolingbrook chamber after five years.
“When I look at all the exciting things that are happening or are about to happen in our community and see the role of the chamber in all of this, it is critical that we find an outstanding individual to follow Evans’ principals,” said Tom Castagnoli, chairman of the Bolingbrook Chamber’s Board of Directors and general manager of The Promenade Bolingbrook.
“For the five years Evans has been an advocate for the economic growth in Bolingbrook and has cultivated vital relationships with key players, not just locally, but in the state as well as around the globe.”
Evans is a 30-year resident of Bolingbrook and prior to leading the chamber worked for DuPage County and for Mayor Roger Claar.
“It has been a privilege to serve the chamber as CEO, as well as the Bolingbrook community,” Evans said. “... The members, staff, board and volunteers will always remain an important part of my personal and professional life.”
The Bolingbrook Area Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit organization whose primary purpose is to promote and support the growth and development of the local business community with nearly 700 members.
