Fourth term for Joh Maxwell

Fourth term for Joh Maxwell Image

Docklands Chamber of Commerce (DCC) president Joh Maxwell has been re-elected for a fourth term.

Mrs Maxwell was elected unopposed following the chamber’s annual general meeting at Oscar’s Table in NewQuay on November 16.

Joining her as vice-president is chamber media director Shane Wylie, who is new to the executive committee. Glenda Archibald is the new treasurer and Paul Kiesler remains secretary.

Also new to the executive are Marlene Ebejer and Justin Jones.

The executive members are: Johanna Maxwell (Tours on Trike); Shane Wylie (OurPoeticPrince Brand and Media Management); Glenda Archibald (Archibald Builders); Paul Keisler (O’Brien Group Arena); Kerry York (NRY Plumbing); Mo Hamdouna (Mo Works); Glenn Donnelly (City Residential Real Estate); Melissa Forester (Bendigo Bank); Marlene Ebejer (Ebejer and Associates Lawyers); and Justin Jones (The Sebel Melbourne Docklands and The Sebel Residences Melbourne Docklands).

In her president’s report, Mrs Maxwell reported that the chamber had successfully applied for four-year’s funding via the City of Melbourne’s precincts program.

She said highlights during 2016/17 included:

Growth in Facebook followers from 22,000 to 129,108; and

Re-introduction of quarterly stakeholders forums.

“Your chamber of commerce is your eyes, ears and voice for the precinct. We encourage all members to be active and, working together, we can ensure our precinct continues to grow and thrive,” Mrs Maxwell said.

“Without commercially viable businesses within Docklands, we will wither and dry up. Our waterways are the jewel in the crown for Melbourne. With activation of the waterways, this will support the broader precinct across retail, hospitality, entertainment and liveability.”
