Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii CEO to retire

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii says its CEO will retire in August after 12 years of leading the state's largest business organization.

The chamber said Friday Jim Tollefson will be succeeded by Sherry Menor-McNamara.

The 41-year-old will be the group's first female president in its 162-year history. She will also be the youngest.

Menor-McNamara is currently the chamber's chief operating officer and senior vice president of government affairs.

She was the events manager for ESPN Sports' Sheraton Hawaii Bowl before joining the chamber in 2006. She has also worked for Sony Corp. and the state legislature.

The chamber says Tollefson will continue to be involved with the organization nationally and as president emeritus. The 70-year-old will also serve as board member of the American Chamber of Commerce Executives.
