CCIQ members in the Toowoomba and South West Queensland Region now have a direct contact to help them get the most from their membership.

Roger Gorrel is the Toowoomba and South West Queensland Regional Manager and will drive CCIQ to enhance its core function of supporting and speaking up for small-to-medium business.

As one of the newest members to the CCIQ team, Roger leverages his membership, business development, advocacy, relationship management and leadership expertise to benefit the Toowoomba and South West Queensland CCIQ members.

Roger has a varied and broad range of business experience across the private and public sectors. His experience in business is outshone only by his passion for being a strong advocate for his members.

Roger has valuable experience from the public and private sectors and comes to CCIQ with a true insight into the business climate in Queensland after spending over 20 years in the media industry as well as being involved directly with small and medium businesses in all aspects of achieving greater business activity and profitability.

Roger has worked with various businesses across a multitude of industries and business sectors as well as having close links with various levels of government across the region. Roger will use that experience to ensure members make the most of their investment in CCIQ.

Roger said, “It's my role to help CCIQ members in Toowoomba and the South West region to take advantage of the services, products and knowledge that we offer."

“As an organisation, CCIQ has experienced some big changes recently. We’ve refocussed our efforts away from business services, towards giving a stronger voice to Queensland businesses and providing as much value as possible to our members.

"My appointment is part of this strategy; it’s my responsibility to keep regular contact with CCIQ members, making sure they get an edge from relevant industry information and take advantage of all the benefits available to them.

“I want to hear from our members about issues which hold their business back, especially if they can suggest solutions for CCIQ to propose to the State and Federal Governments.”

CCIQ members in the Toowoomba and South West Queensland Region are encouraged to contact Roger anytime on 0429 001 612 or at
