New leader at Irving Chamber of Commerce

Beth Bowman, currently the chief development officer and interim vice president of economic development for the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce, is the choice for its new president and CEO. Bowman will take over Aug. 15. In May, Bowman celebrated nine years with the Irving Chamber, the fourth largest chamber in North Texas and the first Five-Star accredited Chamber in Texas. She replaces Chris Wallace who left in May to become the president of the Texas Association of Business. Bowman joined the chamber in 2005 as director of membership services, and then led investor business relations as vice president and quickly became executive vice president. In May, she stepped in as interim vice president of economic development to lead the Irving Economic Development Partnership, which works to relocate and expand existing businesses in the city. Bowman earned the Certified Chamber of Commerce Executive designation – the highest level attainable by chamber leaders – and is a graduate of the Institute of Organizational Management. She is a member of the Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives and American Chamber of Commerce Executives. She received her bachelor’s degree in speech communication with a minor in business from Baylor University. Bowman is a graduate of Leadership North Texas and is currently in the class of 2014 for Leadership Texas.
