NORTH CHANNEL – The Chamber Gala was the setting for the announcement, from new board chairman Greg Ollis, that Margie Buentello had been selected as the permanent President and CEO of the North Channel Chamber.
When Margie was named as interim President/CEO in September, upon the retirement of Dr. Charles Grant, then chair Wilfred Broussard, Jr. commented, “Her enthusiasm, dedication and knowledge of the Chamber’s day to day operations will serve her well in this new position.”
Margie has been working for the Chamber for 17 years, most recently as the Membership Assistant. In this role, she has provided assistance and guidance to chamber members and activities. In this role, she has had the opportunity to know each of the Chamber’s members first hand.
