SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Jerry Sanders will be changing work addresses next month, but only by a few blocks, as the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday that the outgoing mayor will become its new president and CEO.
Sanders will replace Ruben Barrales on Dec. 4, according to the chamber's Ashley Hause. His term as mayor of the city of San Diego ends one day earlier, when he will be succeeded by Rep. Bob Filner, D-San Diego.
Barrales announced in September that he would step down after six years at the chamber's helm. He said he wanted to pursue other opportunities in which he could promote the area's economy.
Sanders was selected by a five-person committee that included last year's chamber chairman, Vincent Mudd of San Diego Office Interiors; Mike Niggli of San Diego Gas & Electric, who will be the chairman next year; and
Mary Ann Barnes of Kaiser Permanente, who will be the vice chairwoman next year.
Sanders, who lives in Kensington, has spent the past eight years at the City Hall on C Street. The chamber is located on West Broadway.
He previously was San Diego police chief and head of the United Way of San Diego County.
