Board of Directors


It is an honor to be chosen as the 2023-2024 Chair of the Odessa Chamber of Commerce.  As we begin this new fiscal year, I cannot help but look back at those that came before me and all they have done to make Odessa an extraordinary place.  Over the years, Odessa has benefitted from our community members and its leaders.  The people of Odessa are hard-working, resilient, charitable, and caring.  As someone that was not born or raised here, I appreciate how unique this place is – a place that is filled with both opportunity and community. That is, indeed, extraordinary. 

As we look forward to the coming year, it is important to acknowledge our growth and current state.  We are in a community that is exceptional in so many ways:

  • Elevated Educational Opportunities – Odessa is home to the best community college in the nation (Odessa College), a comprehensive four-year university in the UT system (UT Permian Basin), a thought-leading and ever-improving school district (ECISD), and a higher education medical residency program (Texas Tech Health Sciences Center).
  • Booming Businesses and Leading Industry Network – Odessa is home to some of the leading oil & gas service companies in the world, host to the Permian Basin International Oil Show, home to entrepreneurs and innovators, and supporter of businesses and industries relocating to the Odessa area.
  • Established Health Care – Odessa is home to two high quality hospitals (Medical Center Hospital and Odessa Regional Medical Center).
  • Sporting Events, Conventions, and Tourism – Odessa is home to the Odessa Jackalopes hockey team, West Texas Warbirds indoor football team, UT Permian Basin NCAA athletics, world class Marriott convention center, and more than 100 years of history rooted in ranching, petroleum, and the American West.

Across all of our departments and programs, the Odessa Chamber of Commerce will continue to be a leader in the community by collaborating with our community stakeholders to enhance the exceptional quality of life that Odessa has to offer. I  am looking forward to seeing what the future holds, and I am excited for the significant role that the Odessa Chamber of Commerce will continue to play in helping Odessa thrive.
