Branch County Area Chamber of Commerce to look for new Executive Director

COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - The Branch County Area Chamber of Commerce announced Friday that Jeff Richards has left his Chamber Director’s post to pursue new business opportunities for his future.  The Board of Directors wished Jeff all the best in his endeavors and thanked him for his service to the Branch Area Chamber of Commerce. 

The Chamber Board of Directors, which is chaired by Dr. Tina Kerr, will create a search committee soon to find and name a new Chamber Director. In the meantime, Jamie Bracy will be handling most Chamber duties with assistance from the Board’s executive committee. Richard’s departure served as an occasion for the Board, in a letter sent yesterday to Chamber members, to point out what it said were some strong successes this year, including a re-vamped website, a community profile & membership directory, the first in many years, and member landing pages, which are provided with Chamber membership.

In conclusion, the letter signed by Dr. Kerr said the Board thanked members of the Chamber for their support and welcomes their input as they hope to implement new programs and events for 2014.
