The Magnolia Parkway Chamber of Commerce recently announced that it has hired Tammy Carnley as its new day-to-day leader.
Carnley was hired recently as the group’s new president, bringing with her several years of publishing and marketing experience. She has owned three different publications in Houston over the past 18 years, which covered everything from resorts and spas to restaurants, entertainment and décor.
“I am excited to be living and working in an area so beautiful,” she said. “I now get to work with some great businesses. Everyone has been super supportive and welcoming.”
Chamber board chair Jason Rinn said that Carnley will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the chamber.
“I am excited to have Tammy as part of the team,” he said. “MPCC will continue to expand and serve the community under her leadership.”
Carnley said she is excited to work with Rinn and all the chamber members.
“Jason has helped me a lot,” she said. “He and the entire board have been extremely supportive and helpful. They, along with our administrative coordinator Katy Daenzer have done everything possible to help me settle in.”
Carnley said she has hit the ground running and already has several ideas she is working on presenting to the board.
“I want to be able to help increase revenue for every business in the area,” she said. “We are working on some things now like our goals as far as distribution and goals for campaign ideas for individual businesses.”
Carnley said she likes to take a listen-first approach to what she does, believing that she can learn something from everyone she meets.
“Knowledge is power,” she said. “I want to talk to businesses owners and their clients and learn something from them all. You have to be open to ideas, change and growth.”
Carnley said that she is ready to get to work and wants to be a positive influence on others.
“It’s time to get things going,” she said. “I’m a positive person and we will build on this already great chamber and help everyone do even better.”
