Shane Wylie resigns from the Docklands Chamber of Commerce
The year has begun with the unfortunate news that Docklands resident and long-serving executive officer of the Docklands Chamber of Commerce (DCC) has resigned from his post after seven years in the role.
In sharing his decision with Docklands News, Mr Wylie, who has been instrumental in supporting the local business community for many years, said while saddened to be leaving the chamber, “it was time to move on”.
“After seven years as executive officer of the Docklands Chamber of Commerce it is time to move on. While it saddens me greatly, I am very aware that Docklands needs a fresh vision,” he said. “I’ll continue to advocate for my beloved home but in other ways from now.”
Mr Wylie, who was behind many successful initiatives during his time serving as executive officer, including the recent Docklands Dollars campaigns, leaves big shoes for the Chamber’s executive committee to fill.
DCC president Daniel Hibberd said it was sad to see Mr Wylie go and thanked him for his seven years of “passionate service” to Docklands.
“The DCC says a sad farewell executive officer Shane Wylie – a long-term Docklands resident who has provided the DCC with seven years of passionate service. He will be sorely missed,” Mr Hibberd said.
“Shane has been instrumental in driving unprecedented local business collaboration through recent Docklands Dollars programs, he has aided the chamber to extend its positive reach and effectiveness with extensive local knowledge and stakeholder engagement with the likes of City of Melbourne, Development Victoria, developers and many local businesses.”
“We wish Shane all the very best in his future endeavours and we’re sure he will continue to provide a huge amount of value with any direction he takes.”
The DCC is now in talks with the City of Melbourne and Development Victoria to find Mr Wylie’s replacement. •
