Steward Sandstrom is out as President and CEO of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber board fired Sandstrom Friday, saying new leadership is needed to meet the chamber’s goals. Board chairman Tom Fitch says the search for a new leader will focus on finding someone from the Springfield area who understands the history and needs of local businesses. Sandstrom had been working in Michigan when he was hired here in 2012.
Fitch says the parting was “amicable.” Sandstrom declined to comment.
