The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, missing a firm hand at the helm since August's departure of president Kim Scheeler, hopes to fill two prime positions by the end of the year. Farthest along is the search for an executive to replace Myron Hughes, who resigned last winter as the chamber's head of economic development through its Committee of 100. After a nationwide search that focused on 20 serious contenders, chamber officials should hire Hughes' replacement in October, said John Ramil, president of TECO Energy and head of the search committee. Scheeler's position will take longer to fill, but his successor could be in place as early as December, Ramil said.
