Chamber Team Welcomes New Events Manager Lesley Edwards
The Chamber is very pleased to welcome Lesley Edwards to our team. Creativity, attention to detail and thinking outside of the box are a few of the skills Lesley Edwards brings with her to her new role as Events Manager with the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce. Lesley lived in Whistler, British Columbia for 10 years, her work at the Whistler Arts Council laid the foundation for her passion in providing superb customer service. After moving to Thunder Bay in 2011, Lesley used this passion to learn as much as she could while providing support for events at Ecosuperior Environmental Programs and the North West Local Health Integration Network.
A traveller and adventurer at heart, Lesley has visited Australia and Southeast Asia on rock climbing trips with her husband. These days time is spent raising and enjoying their two young children and if time permits maybe sneaking out for a trail run! Her dedication, ability to multi-task and work well under pressure while maintaining a positive attitude will be invaluable in her new role.
Please join us in welcoming Lesley and be sure to say hello when you see her out and about.
