President and CEO of the Lake Havasu Area Chamber of Commerce Lisa Krueger announced in a letter to Chamber members today that she will retire from the post on Aug. 31.
“When I began my first Chamber job 27 years ago in Parker, I never dreamed this work would become my lifelong career, and one that I would grow to love. I feel fortunate to have received my first set of skills at the Chamber in Parker and am so very grateful I was hired to lead your Chamber of Commerce here in Havasu in 2002,” Krueger stated in her letter.
Krueger said that she “literally grew into an adult” at the Chamber.
“I’ve met the most amazing people, many who have become lifelong friends. I have acquired job-related skills that you just can’t learn in school, and have had amazing opportunities to travel, learn and lead. While I am looking forward to my own time now, I will miss my Chamber life.”
With a long list of projeccts ahead, Krueger said she will start with her health and wellness and assured members she would not be “retiring from life.”
Members of the Chamber’s Executive Committee will serve as the selection committee to hire the next CEO beginning now.
Information and a job description of the position is available at the Chamber. The deadline for applicants is May 1.
