Chamber Announces Finalists For President

Four chamber of commerce leaders will be coming to Hopkinsville this week to interview for the position as Christian County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO. Local Chamber Board Chairman, Spencer Kilijian says they were excited to receive a number of qualified applicants and the four finalists represent the best candidates.

The candidates are Jeffrey Griffin, former President/CEO of the Wooster Chamber of Commerce in Ohio; Gordon Crow, former President/CEO of Chambers of Commerce in Houma, Louisiana and Laramie, Wyoming; Amy Cloud, current Executive Director of the Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce; and Marian Mason, former President Wayne County Chamber of Commerce in North Carolina.

Griffin stepped down as president of the Wooster Area Chamber of Commerce in late December 2012, after being the president for more than four years, to accept a position with Edward Jones in the north end of Wooster.

Crow worked for three years in Wyoming before taking the position in Louisiana in February 2013. He resigned from the position in September citing personal reasons. Crow was, previously, a three-term state senator in Idaho.

Cloud was named Jessamine County Chamber Director in late January 2011 and before then worked as the part-time director of the Garrard County Chamber of Commerce and the vice president of the McMinnville-Warren County Chamber of Commerce in McMinnville, Tenn.

Mason currently works at Emeritus in Clarksville as the Community Relations Director. Between her time at the Wayne County Chamber and now, she taught at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. She has also served as the President and CEO of Central Baldwin Chamber of Commerce in Alabama.

In October, the Christian County Chamber Board of Directors appointed a search committee to oversee the search process and the first round of interviews were conducted in mid-December. The second round of interviews is being conducted this week and will include a meet and greet with Board members, staff interview, community tour, and final interview with the search committee.
