NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - It was the first day on the job for the recently hired president and CEO for the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce.
C. Wayne Mitchell began what he's calling a "listening tour."
It started with Mitchell meeting Nacogdoches City Manager Jim Jeffers.
Bill Teague, the chamber's interim president since October of last year, has two days of introductions planned for Mitchell.
The founder of a chamber management and consulting firm wants to learn what the community's achievements and goals are.
"It's going to be very important for me to get a sense of what the dreams and aspirations are of businesses we represent here at the chamber, at the same time get a sense of what the local folks expect," Mitchell said. "And it's kinda exhilarating."
Wayne Mitchell is moving to East Texas from Maine. He will be joined soon by his wife, Bonnie.
