Lezley introduced herself Wednesday morning at the Chamber Offices in Sulphur Springs
What an absolute honor and privilege to introduce myself as the new President and CEO of the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce. My name is Lezley Brown.
Here’s a bit of history about me. I graduated from Sulphur Springs High School in 1996 and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Texas in 1999. I then graduated from Texas Woman’s University with a Master of Science degree in Communication Sciences. Almost 19 years ago I married Mr. Chris Brown, and we have three beautiful daughters, Katey (14), Talley (10), and Jobey (7). We live in Hopkins County and are happy to call this our home.
Representing Hopkins County has always been a desire of mine. When the opportunity to interview for the President of the Chamber arose, I pursued it wholeheartedly. I’m taking the reigns from Meredith Caddell whom has worked alongside her Chamber board members so diligently to move the chamber into a wonderful place. It is because of their hard work I will be able to step in and continue their mission of moving the chamber forward.
One of the aspects I look forward to the most in this position is creating new relationships and furthering existing ones. I can already tell that meeting new people will be one of my favorite parts of the day. As the Chamber, we will represent Hopkins County in the most positive way possible, promote business and industry and strive for their successes, and bring awareness to our local businesses that help make Hopkins County such a wonderful place to live. We are going to add in some exciting some new adventures and opportunities. This promises to be an exciting time for Hopkins County, and I am thankful to be a part of it.
