Fingal Dublin Chamber has announced that its founder and CEO Tony Lambert is to step down from his current role. Lambert has decided that the time is right to pursue other interests including consultancy work. Commenting on his decision, he stated: “I think the time is right to hand over the reins to a new CEO to take the Chamber to the next level.”
Chambers Ireland has praised the hard work and contribution of Lambert who served on the board of Chambers Ireland for 12 years until 2016 and was also chair of the nationwide Chamber Executive Forum for six years until 2014.
Chambers Ireland Chief Executive Ian Talbot said: “While Fingal was always his home ground Tony’s apparently boundless energy enabled him to contribute very significantly to the development of the Chamber Network throughout the country. His experience and expertise were vital to the organisation as the country underwent boom and bust and our organisation had to adapt to the changing needs and requirements of members.”
Current Chair of the Chamber Executive Forum and CEO of Cork Chamber, Conor Healy, added: “Tony has been an inspiration to Chambers up and down the country, leading by example in establishing a vibrant, successful Chamber that has been a model for others across the country. Tony also always found time to provide invaluable guidance, advice and mentoring to his peers.”
