Steele named president of Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce

The Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce announces the appointment of Arlis A. Steele as its president and CEO. She replaces Les Cohen, who retired from the chamber in June after 20 years in the position.

Steele has been active in leadership and management for two C]chambers of commerce as well as several governmental entities in California.

Most recently, she served as the executive director of the Dunsmuir Chamber of Commerce in Siskiyou County, Calif., where she successfully led a chamber turn-around by creating innovative new member services and fostering a new spirit of collaboration among business, government, and the community at large.

Her work experience includes effective leadership as the Youth/Senior Service director of the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians and the director of the Coyote Valley Tribal EPA.

Steele’s community service background is extensive. She has served as an active board member for the Art Center Ukiah, Hopland Economic Development Corporation, Ukiah Community Center, and the Collier Interpretive Information Center.

“Our Selection Committee diligently worked for four months on an extensive national search to find the best candidate to be our next CEO/president,” said Chamber Board Chair Jerry Law. “Arlis has a proven Chamber of Commerce track record plus a very strong commitment to the community. We are excited and proud to have her lead the Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce”.

For more information contact the Chamber at 541-469-3181.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
