Tom Donohue to leave Chamber of Commerce: Report

Thomas Donohue, the president and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, will reportedly be leaving his role.

The chamber is expected to name Suzanne Clark as his successor, according to Axios, which cited people familiar with the matter.

Donohue, a longtime confidant of Republican presidents who has been at the Chamber of Commerce since 1976, faced criticism from some in the GOP with his more recent political moves. The New York native endorsed a slate of House Democrats during the 2020 election cycle and was among the earliest CEOs to acknowledge President Biden’s triumph in the presidential contest, which reportedly led to a tense phone call with former President Donald Trump.
