Lenna Barr Selected as Killeen Chamber Vice President
Lenna Barr has been selected to fill the position of Vice President of Administration and Finance at the Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce. She will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Heather Nusbaum, who has left the chamber to operate a number of businesses she and her husband, Eric, own. Ms. Nusbaum was a long-serving employee having been employed at the chamber for fourteen years.
The position is responsible for all accounting, financial reporting, auditing, information technology, and human resources at the chamber which includes the Fort Hood Regional Economic Development Foundation, the Killeen Economic Development Corporation and the Killeen Industrial Foundation. In addition, the position supervises the Business Resource Center, a collaboration between the chamber, Central Texas College and Workforce Solutions of Central Texas. The position is also critical to the chamber’s Public Policy and Military Relations Councils and to the chamber’s programs to support public education.
GKCC President John Crutchfield said, “We are certainly going to miss Heather here. She is a dedicated, competent and thoroughly professional person who has demonstrated the ability to innovate and deliver value. Her impact on this organization will last for a long time as evidenced by the innovations she helped pioneer here. Our staff and our volunteers wish her great success.”
Lenna Barr comes to the chamber from Kidz TherapEZE where she served as Vice President of Operations for the past twelve years. In that capacity, she was responsible for staff and clinical supervision, policy development and implementation, conflict resolution, strategic planning, accounting and information technology. She has a BBA in Accounting and an MBA in Accounting from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.
GKCC President John Crutchfield said, “We are happy to have Lenna join our chamber staff and our leadership team. She is a well-educated, enthusiastic, multi-tasker with a deep knowledge and love of this community and region.”
