VISALIA – The Visalia Chamber of Commerce has announced that Glenn Morris, current president & CEO of the Chamber has resigned, effective June 20, 2014. Glenn has accepted a new opportunity with the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce and will be relocating. He will continue in his current role through the end of June, providing continued leadership and assistance with the transition.
“I have been blessed to work in a community which values business and recognizes the importance of creating jobs and opportunities for economic vitality,” Morris said. “The leaders that I have come to know through the Chamber have always supported me in our efforts to build the premier community in the Valley in which to live, raise a family, and operate a business. I look forward to taking the lessons I have learned here to my new community.”
While Morris will be missed, the Chamber continues to have strong volunteer leadership and a dedicated professional staff who will continue the work of the organization while recruitment for a new president & CEO is conducted. An announcement about the search process will be available from the Chamber in the coming weeks.
