The Wanaka chamber of commerce’s new general manager is a familiar face.

Ignite Wanaka has contracted its executive officer, Naomi Lindsay, as its new general manager, as part of restructuring within the organisation.

The chamber’s board is also increasing resources and support for events in the Upper Clutha business community.

Ms Lindsay has held an executive officer’s contract with the chamber since 2015.

Over the past six years, she has increased membership from 120 to 370 members, helped implement the Ignite Wanaka Business Awards and the Wanaka Women in Business series and introduced other events to the business calendar.

Another staff member is being sought to help carry out the chamber’s work.

Meanwhile, the volunteer board members will take on portfolios and work with key stakeholders on strategy and advocacy.

Ms Lindsay said she looked forward to responding to economic challenges in the growing community.
