Jim Roche departs Business and Industry Association

Jim Roche, CEO and president of the Business & Industry Association of New Hampshire since 2005, announced his departure from the statewide advocacy group to lead the Maine Bankers Association as its next president.

“Leaving the best job I’ve ever had was a difficult decision,” Roche said. “But after nearly 17 years at the helm of BIA, I’m ready for the new challenges and opportunities this change will bring.”

“The officers and board of directors of BIA want to thank Jim for his incredible leadership of this organization for the past 17 years. Although Jim will be sorely missed, he leaves BIA in an outstanding position for continued growth and success,” said Sheryl McQuade, chair of BIA’s board and regional president of TD Bank. “The team is currently working on a plan to ensure a smooth leadership transition as we commence the search for Jim’s replacement.”
