Lezley Brown, the current President/CEO of the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce
announced to the Chamber Board of Directors Thursday, January 7, that she will be resigning her
position at the Chamber in the middle of April. Brown told the Board, “These five years have
been some of my favorite in all of my career. I have met amazing people and learned more than
I ever imagined I would. I want, very much, to be helpful in this transition. When I joined the
Chamber team five years ago, I walked in completely wild-eyed and excited. You need to look
for someone with that excitement. That excitement and love for the Chamber is what gets me
through the hardest days here. I can’t wait to see who you will choose next to carry out the big
dreams of our wonderful Chamber, and I can’t wait to see the big things that are destined to
happen in our community.”

in the last five years. Her infectious personality and visionary leadership have taken the Chamber
to new heights. In those five years, with her leadership, we have relocated the Chamber offices to
the Square, started our Grow-n-Go program for new businesses, and celebrated the 50th Stew
Contest with our biggest Stew ever. We are grateful for these five years and believe we are
poised and ready for continued success.
