The Woodbury Chamber of Commerce has hired a new executive director, according to a Woodbury Bulletin story.
Entrepreneur and consultant Barbara Warren will serve as the business group’s new leader starting later this month, the story says.
“She was definitely our candidate that certainly goes above and beyond with experience,” Executive Committee Chair Heidi Bardwell told the newspaper. “She brings a wealth of information to our chamber and will continue to let our chamber grow.”
Bardwell replaces Travis Martinson, the first-ever executive director in the history of the Woodbury Chamber of Commerce. Martinson stepped down in October, taking a job with her local church in Burnsville.
The organization has “grown into a chamber worthy of the business community,” Martinson said at the time.
The Woodbury Chamber of Commerce narrowed a field of 30 candidates to five before opting for Warren.
Warren may have her work cut out for her. Asked recently what the organization is looking for in a new executive director, Scott Carlson, Woodbury Chamber of Commerce treasurer, said “Superman or Superwoman.”
