Rockford Chamber director resigns

Davis has led business organization for last six years

by BETH ALTENA

The Rockford Chamber of Commerce will have a new director when the resignation of Brenda Davis becomes effective March 25. According to Chamber Board President Dr. Carl Stites, Davis told the board she was resigning at their most recent board meeting earlier this month. Jeanne Gregory will serve as interim executive director for a three month period.

“We were very lucky to have had Brenda as executive director of the chamber this past six years,” said Stites. “She is a big part of why the Chamber has been so successful.” Stites said that the position is very time consuming, with many night and weekend events the director is expected to oversee. “This has taken a big chunk of time away from her family,” Stites stated.

Davis was hired when former director Carl Shook retired after leading the organization for several years. In his tenure, and continued by Davis, the Chamber was reinvented, with every-other-month luncheons, afterhours networking events, an ambassador program and increased membership.
