Judy Morehead of Navarre has been selected as the next CEO of the Navarre Area Chamber of Commerce. She’s scheduled to start her new job Tuesday.
The chamber has been dealing with the community’s response and board member resignations in the aftermath of the unexpected firing of former CEO Tony Alexander.
Here is the letter the current chamber president emailed the board regarding the new hire:
