The Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce announced April 8 that Jeffrey Campos, executive director of Global Chamber Denver and Chicago, has been hired to replace outgoing President and CEO John Safin.
Mr. Safin is leaving the chamber after eight years due to family issues.
“After interviewing dozens of very qualified candidates over the past few months, we are thrilled to have Jeffrey Campos join the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce,” said Christopher Amos, incoming board chairman.
“Mr. Campos brings years of leadership, economic development, business development and so much more to the table," he said. "His experience will certainly be an asset not only to the chamber, but to the entire business community here in the Southwest Valley.”
Mr. Campos supported the Global Chamber’s mission of cross-border trade and investment and accelerating global business growth for businesses, and drove an ambitious agenda designed to push forward ideas and initiatives that align with current trends found in forward-thinking global cities, according to a release.
After a brief transition period, Mr. Campos will begin his new role with the local chamber May 1.
