Welcome to a trusted face on the Sunshine Coast
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) has appointed a new Regional Manager to cover the Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay area.
Grant Ferry (pictured) brings a wealth of experience from working in the region and further afield.
“I have worked with small businesses all over Australia," he said.
"Specifically, three years as a Commercial Director for APN News and Media ... here I looked after daily and weekly newspapers, from Fraser Coast to Mackay on the coast, and Emerald in the west.
"This was followed by another three years as the General Manager of the Sunshine Coast Newspaper company.
"I was responsible for the Sunshine Coast Daily and 11 weekly publications from Noosa to Caboolture."
Mr Ferry worked closely with small business in his various jobs.
"In all my roles I always championed and promoted small business as they are a major employer in the community," he said.
"Now I am proud to represent an organisation where I can totally focus on positive outcomes and support for SMEs.”
Mr Ferry replaces former CCIQ Sunshine Coast Regional Manager Kimberley Lynch.
