Burt Langille, President of the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce has announced the appointment of local businessman Jack Kyte as Acting Executive Director of the Chamber.
Langille said the Chamber Board of Directors is very pleased Kyte has accepted the position, which will be on a part time basis.
“Our Chamber is in the process of renewal with a more active approach to supporting local business and helping the economy grow.”
“We have asked Jack to continue to focus on some of the positive work that was being done at PRDA which closed recently, particularly the business attraction and investment strategy,” Langille said. “We need to be more responsive to the needs of our members and the business community.”
Kyte worked 35 years in the pulp and paper industry and currently has his own communications consulting business. Most recently he was the Executive Director of the Pictou Regional Development Agency and is on the Boards of the Aberdeen Health Foundation and Efficiency Nova Scotia Corporation. He is currently chair of the Chamber's Economic Development Committee.
“I am looking forward to working on behalf of the business community for the overall good of our region,” Kyte said. “We need a coordinated and cooperative approach, with the private sector and municipalities all pulling in the same direction. We need to build on the inherent strengths of Pictou County and all work as a team to make our home county a preferred place in which to do business.”
