Cobb Chamber of Commerce engages search firm to find new President & Chief Executive Officer

May 4, 2010

   The Board of Directors of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce has begun the search for the Chamber’s next President & Chief Executive Officer, retaining Waverly Partners LLC as its executive search firm. Incoming Board Chairman Dr. Greg Simone will head an 8-member search committee that will work with Waverly Partners to identify qualified local, regional and national candidates. 

   “Our committee has developed a profile with the experience and leadership characteristics of our preferred candidate,” Simone said. “We are open to executives with backgrounds in chambers of commerce, business associations, other kinds of nonprofits, private sector or related experience with a commitment to our mission of business advocacy in Cobb County and this region.”

   Bill Cooper, the Chamber’s previous President, retired at the end of 2009 after 10 years of service at the organization and Don Beaver, the Chamber’s former Chief Operating Officer, is serving as President on an interim basis.

   For more information about the search, contact search consultants Eric Peterson or Debbie Galbraith at; all inquiries will be held in confidence.
