WINNIPEG — There is a change in leadership at the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce. After 17 years with the chamber, President Dave Angus is stepping down to return to the private sector.

“I remember when I first took the job, I thought I’d be there for five years and move onto something else,” Angus told Geoff Currier on 680 CJOB Thursday morning.

“I’ve always had an appetite to move into the private sector, as I love business,” he said.

Angus said he took a position in Winnipeg with the Johnston Group, a national insurance administrator that started here in the city.

He will be replaced by Loren Remillard, the current chamber executive vice-president. Remillard will take over July 1.

Alana Odegard will move into the role of the chamber’s executive vice-president.

“It was the right time to leave,”Angus said. “I know the chamber is in great hands. Sometimes you can stay too long.  But I love my job, that’s why I stayed fore 17 years.”

Angus’ official last day is July 31.
