Hello All - When we learned that Jim Smith would be leaving us at the first of the year to assume his new duties as County Commissioner, the Executive Board of the Chamber formed a CEO Selection Committee to find his successor. In less than two weeks we received 60 applications from all around the US as well as from several excellent local candidates. After scrutinizing the qualifications of the applicants, the members of the Selection Committee met, interviewed the finalists, contemplated, and reached a recommendation. That recommendation was unanimously endorsed by the entire Executive Board.
We are very pleased to announce that Angie Osguthorpe has accepted the position of the new President/CEO of the Davis Chamber, effective January 1, 2015. We are very excited about Angie's ability to lead our Chamber to the next level, building on a very solid base. She has been involved in the Chamber for the last five years as Director of Sales and Events and her impact has been immense. She comes to us with two bachelor's degrees and an MBA. Besides her position at the Chamber she has had significant experience in the business world and has taught college-level business classes. She has the support of our Board, our Chamber members, legislative and municipal leaders and the local business community. Angie impressed the Selection Committee with her enthusiasm and insightful observations on ways to continue to improve our ability to serve you, our Chamber members.
Please join us in congratulating Angie in this new challenge. We encourage you to get involved in the Chamber and let your voice be heard.
Mike Jensen, Chair
Susan Davis, Vice-Chair
