(From Press Release) – Due to a rare professional opportunity, the Davis Chamber of Commerce has accepted the resignation of Executive Director Jen Schroer, effective Jan. 1. Schroer is leaving her position with the Davis Chamber for an appointment to the cabinet of New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez. Her appointment begins Jan. 2.
“Jen has made a positive impact for the Davis Chamber in her short tenure,” said Carolyn Stiver, 2019 chairwoman of the chamber’s board of directors. “Taking on a statewide role serving the people of New Mexico is certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity and we wish her well in her new position.”
Starting Jan. 2, Michael Faust, President of MEF Consulting and member of the DCOC Board, will serve as interim executive director while the board conducts an expedited search for a new executive director. Faust, along with the DCOC staff, will maintain normal business operations for the Davis Chamber, including planning for the Installation Gala on Feb. 2.
“We have every confidence in Michael, Holly and Bobbi to keep the Davis chamber moving with positive momentum created at our board retreat last fall,” said Rob White, outgoing chairman of the board of directors. “We look forward to finding a new Executive Director in short order and celebrating the closing of a great 2018 and the start of a promising 2019 at the upcoming Installation Gala.”
The job announcement for the position of DCOC Executive Director will be posted on Indeed and the DCOC website. Applications will be accepted from Jan. 4 through 18.
