SW King County Chamber Of Commerce Names Lynn Wallace New President
After a five-month national search, the Board of Directors of the Southwest King County Chamber of Commerce (we’re members) announced this week that they have chosen Lynn Wallace to be their new President/CEO.
Her first day will be Monday, April 4th, so she and outgoing President Nancy Hinthorne (currently serving as interim Executive Director of Discover Burien) will have a two-week transition period before “taking the reins” officially April 16th.
“Lynn has served as a Chamber Executive for 14 years in Oregon and Washington,” the chamber said in a letter sent out to its members. “She was the Executive Director of the Eastern Pierce County Chamber of Commerce from 1994 to 2004, and spent the last six years in the local hotel industry. Lynn is very familiar with Southwest King County and knows many of the Seattle area Chamber Executives. She has a proven track record of organizational leadership and a passion for the work of the chamber.”
We welcome Lynn to the chamber, and look forward to working with her to help all local businesses!
