Leading Brisbane businesswoman Theresa Moltoni has been appointed President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ).
Ms Moltoni, the Managing Director of IRIQ, takes over from former CCIQ President, Cairns lawyer Brett Moller, who stepped down today after two years in the position.
“I am honoured to take on the role of the President of CCIQ at a time when there are significant challenges and prospects for the business community in areas of innovation and disruption, with opportunities for business growth never before experienced,” she said.
“Those opportunities are available to each and every entrepreneur or business person who has an idea and is willing to have a go.
“CCIQ must embrace and support businesses to take advantage of this and in turn enhance the economic prosperity of Queensland.”
Ms Moltoni had been a member of the CCIQ Board of Directors since August, 2014.
She initially founded her company IRIQ in 2008 as a part time consulting business. IRIQ is a national professional services firm that specialises in Industrial Relations consultancy, advice, advocacy and training. IRIQ was selected as a finalist in the Telstra Business Awards in 2013.
Ms Moltoni’s extensive career, which spans more than 25 years, covers a wide range of high-level executive roles in a number of industry sectors. These roles have encompassed Human Resources, Industrial Relations and CEO responsibilities.
Prof Mark Harvey, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research and Innovation) at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), was appointed CCIQ’s Vice President.
The new Board of Directors, elected today, includes Peter McKeon, Simon Lockyer and Tony Schiffman.
