    Midland Area Chamber of Commerce, Midland Tomorrow Engage Search Firm to Find New President/CEO
    Midland, MI – The Boards of Directors of the Midland Area Chamber of Commerce and of Midland Tomorrow have agreed to begin the search for a President and Chief Executive Officer to lead both organizations. Waverly Partners, LLC, a national executive search firm and the provider of executive search services of the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, has been retained to help conduct the search. Sharon Miller, owner of ITH of Michigan, LLC, will serve as chair of a 10-member search committee that will work with Waverly Partners to identify qualified local, regional and national candidates.
    “Waverly Partners consultants met with the committee, along with Chamber and Midland Tomorrow staff. We have developed a profile with the experience and leadership characteristics of our preferred candidate,” Miller said. “The committee is open to executives with backgrounds in chambers of commerce, economic development, business associations, other types of nonprofits, or related experience with a commitment to business advocacy and strong economic development in Midland and the Great Lakes Bay Region.”
    The profile has been posted on the websites of the Chamber and Midland Tomorrow. For more information, contact Eric Peterson of Waverly Partners at Midland@Waverly-Partners.com; all inquiries will be held in confidence.
