The Charleston Area Alliance and Charleston Regional Chamber of Commerce is looking for a new chief.
Steve Rubin, who served as interim president and CEO of the groups since August 2020, has resigned, according to a news release. Rubin declined to offer details other than to indicate he was exploring opportunities in the private sector and taking advantage of some personal time.
A spokesperson said an eight-person search committee comprised of board members, business owners and community leaders is looking for a replacement. A timeline and other details related to the search have yet to be divulged.
“Under the supervision of the Alliance and Chamber Board Chairs, the board of directors are entrusting the staff to continue the duties and mission of the organizations as Waverly Partners continues their search for a permanent CEO/President,” the organizations said in a statement.
