    The Quad-Cities Chamber announced Tuesday it has retained a national executive search firm to begin the search for a new CEO to replace former CEO Tara Barney, who resigned last month. 

    Waverly Partners LLC, will work with a chamber task force to conduct the nationwide search. Waverly Partners is the preferred provider of executive search services of the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, of which the Quad-City chamber is a member.

    Pat Eikenberry, the chamber's board chairman, said the board also has appointed a nine-person task force of Quad-City residents who are actively involved in the community and/or the chamber to work with Waverly Partners. The task force represents businesses large and small from Iowa and Illinois, and from a variety of business sectors.

    "We've got a good opportunity to do this right," he said, adding the process will "be very collaborative and transparent."

    Qualified applicants or referrals should contact the search firm by email at QuadCities@Waverly-Partners.com.
