New CEO announced for NI Chamber

The new Chief Executive of the NI Chamber has been announced.

Suzanne Wylie will take up the top job at the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry, replacing Ann McGregor, who announced earlier this year that she was stepping down from the role after 15 years.

Suzanne was formerly Chief Executive of Belfast City Council until January 2022 when she was appointed CEO of the Government of Jersey. She is expected to take up her new role at NI Chamber in summer of this year.

President of NI Chamber Gillian McAuley welcomed Suzanne’s appointment.


“Replacing Ann was always going to be a challenge after her long and successful track record at NI Chamber. However, we are delighted that Suzanne, with all her extensive experience and expertise, will be our new Chief Executive.

“Businesses in Northern Ireland face a multitude of challenges at the moment but there is also immense opportunity as the region emerges as the ideal location for business expansion.

“Under Suzanne’s leadership, NI Chamber will continue to work with businesses across all sectors to give voice to their issues and to promote sustained economic growth in Northern Ireland.

“Exciting times lie ahead for Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and I look forward to working closely with Suzanne as we continue to maximise our impact and potential.”
