Chamber Names Interim Director

Jul 26, 2013 04:31PM ● Published by Jason Huddle

Concord-The Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Cabarrus Economic Development Corporation has announced that Carroll D. Gray will serve as interim executive director.

 

On July 9, John Cox, longtime president and CEO of the Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce and Cabarrus Economic Development Corporation, resigned from his post to become the president of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce.

 

“Throughout his tenure, John Cox and his team have accomplished many things for Cabarrus County, including the recruitment of more than 20 new businesses to the area,” stated Tom Earnhardt, Chairman of the Board of the Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce. “While we’re certainly disappointed that John Cox has resigned from his position, we are confident that Carroll Gray’s experience and willingness to serve as interim executive director will allow the county to continue to accomplish its short term goals.”

 

Gray, formally the president of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, will manage all executive responsibilities for the Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Corporation. He will also lend his expertise in the search of a permanent replacement for the president and CEO for both organizations.

 

As the president of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, Gray’s primary focus was on economic development. During his tenure his team facilitated the recruitment of over 12,000 businesses, 200,000 jobs and $15 billion in new investments throughout the region. After retiring as president of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce in 2006, Gray continued an active role in economic development and public policy, and founded Carroll Gray and Associates, a consulting firm that has provided counsel to chambers and municipalities across the Carolinas.
