Barbara Lang to resign from D.C. Chamber

Barbara Lang, longtime president of the D.C. Chamber of Commerce, will resign after 11-plus years as the District’s leading advocate for business.

Coming off a huge victory — the D.C. Council’s failure Tuesday to override Mayor Vincent Gray’s veto of the large retailer living wage bill — Lang, who’s in her “late 60s,” decided now is the time to go, she told the Washington Business Journal.

“I am a firm believer that no one should stay in the same job for more than 10 years and I’m beyond that,” Lang said.

Lang’s final day will not come for months, until a successor has been chosen. Korn/Ferry International has been chosen to undertake a national search.

Much more to come.
